Nagano's Bank of Deities – Timeless Reflections

In English, it means ‘Bank of Deities’. Though not as popular as the famous ‘Takato Castle’, Rokudō no Tsutsumi is arguably the better option for your ‘hanami’ or flower viewing party in the spring time.

Though they are similar in some ways they are also quite different in appearance, variations and blooming period.
