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.
