[Cherry Blossom] Lake Yogo Cherry Blossoms

Lake Yogo is famous for the legend of the Celestial Maidens.

It is a small lake with a 6.4km circumference, and is also known as the "mirror lake." Just as this name suggests, the calm surface reflects back the beauty of the seasons throughout the year.

天女の羽衣伝説のもとになった柳

A large willow tree grows on the bank of Lake Yogo - the famous willow that the Celestial Maidens hung their feathered garments on in the legend.
It still stands quietly by the lake today, wreathed in a mysterious atmosphere.

余呉湖を彩る八重桜

In springtime the Oshima cherry and double-blossomed cherry trees planted around Lake Yogo all burst into life.

Early April is the best time to see them!

導水路沿いの余呉川堤

Walk along the banks and you'll also come to the Yogogawa River weir and it's driving channel. Continue along the channel and you'll find an avenue of Yoshino cherry trees! Other flowers are blooming too, creating a beautiful symphony of color!
This popular spot is visited by many families and cameramen throughout the year.

ピンクと新緑のコントラストが美しい湖畔沿い

When the double-blossom cherry trees flower you can enjoy the striking contrast between the pink and verdant green.

湖上に咲く桜

Enjoy the dance of the cherry blossoms across the water, carried on the spring breeze. Surrounded by nature, the blue sky, blue lake and spring-colored cherry all paint a wonderful picture.
