One of the spring flowers “Shibazakura”

Hello from Michi no Eki Aso!

Spring has come in Aso! Towns are colorful with many varieties of flowers! 🌷

 

Today I am going to talk about Shibazakura.

“Shiba”(芝)means grass and “Zakura” is the same as Sakura(cherry blossom).

In Japanese, the pronunciation of some words changes when they are combined with one or more words, therefore, the spelling changes to reflect that.

So Shibazakura gets its name because it looks like Sakura and covers the ground like a lawn.

The following two sites that you can access easily from Michi no Eki Aso.

 

Firstly, the Kurumagaeri area that takes 20mins by car from Michi no Eki Aso.

Can you see these Shibazakura that looks like Sakura?

So cute 🌸

 

The site is marked on the Google map below.

 

Next, Ubu Shrine(産神社) that takes 15mins by car from Michi no Eki Aso.

At the entrance of Ubu Shrine, Shibazakura welcome you ♪

 

The site is marked on the Google map below.

 

Short walking distance from Ubu Shrine, there is a river called Yotsue-gawa.

Look at the long pink carpet and the background Mount Aso.

Super gorgeous!

 

The local have been preserved these over 300 meters long Sibazakura.

They hope that a lot of people enjoy this wonderful landscape.

 

Also you will be amazed by fireflies in summer season at this place.

We cannot wait to see them too!

 

The site is marked on the Google map below.

 

Please stay safe! We hope we can see you soon in Aso!
