A tunnel of sakura at Musenyama KDDI Forest in Ina Town Saitama

Musenyama

Musenyama is number thirteen of fourteen greenery trust conservation sites in Saitama Prefecture. It is on the trust list for its Konara Oak and other deciduous trees. But the park is most known for its avenue of cherry blossoms. The name is a pun on the absence of a KDDI antenna that used to be at the site. Musen 無線 in Japanese means wireless and yama 山 means mountain. The number ten greenery trust conservation site in Saitama Prefecture is also on this blog, here.

2024 Musenyama Cherry Blossoms

In the area

There are also beautiful cherry blossoms in Hiratsuka park, in neighboring Ageo, which is about a 17 minute walk or 4 minute drive from Musen-yama. Beside that there is an excellent Spo-cha which has a kid’s spocha too. And for future reference, later in spring you can see roses in Ina town!
