Miko no Yamazakura' are mountain cherry blossoms in Miko that are designated as a prefectural natural treasure. They are found on the Tsunekami Peninsula off Wakasa Bay running along an approx. 1km east to west and 200m north to south section of Miko. There are thought to be about 300 cherry trees and, in early April, the hills become a blanket of their beautiful pink blossoms. In combination with a view of Wakasa Bay they create a breathtaking sight.
