Current Address
Kita-ku, Oji
The origin of the mountain's name is from the fact that Asukamyojin no Yashiro was enshrined there. From 1720, by order of the 8th Shogun Yoshimune, approximately 1,000 cherry tree saplings, azalea, Japanese red pine, maple and other trees were planted by the Shogunate government. A large number of people visited the area as a meisho (famous place) for flower-viewing.
