Japan's first public cemetery, established in 1874. Many notable people are at rest in its vast grounds, including Toshimichi Okubo, Tsuyoshi Inukai, Danjuro Ichikawa, Naoya Shiga and Koyo Ozaki. A well-known spot for viewing cherry blossoms, having around 500 Yoshino cherry trees, its tree-lined path turns into a magnificent cherry blossom tunnel. There are also grand old trees which are well worth seeing.
