Nejiki Cedar Tree and the sunset glow(Nejiki no Sugi to Yuyake)


Nejiki Cedar Tree in the sunset glow

The Nejiki Cedar Tree is a huge tree associated with the Anchin Kiyohime Legend. It stands at a high altitude of approximately 500 meters, commanding a panoramic view of Tanabe Bay. When the sky over Tanabe is colored with the sunset glow, the silhouette of complexly twisted branches is revealed in a mysterious way.
