Silk tree (Albizia julibrissin)(Nemunoki)


Pink folding fans beside a clear stream

Along Kumano Kodo, silk trees have unfolded fan-like flowers from June to July. Since the trees like water, they can often be observed around a river. Along the Hiki-gawa River, visitors can enjoy the contrast between their flowers and the clear stream.
