Cherry trees along the canal

The Fushimi Inari area has more scenic cherry blossom viewing spots than any other part of Kyoto city. In particular, the cherries that line the JR railway and the canal are known for being some of the most picturesque in the area. People in neighboring communities are proud of the lovely flowering trees, and even more of the elegant sight of cherry petals wafting down and floating away on the water of the canal.
