The Banyan Tree

While watching Scent of a Woman, they had a scene under the Banyan Tree. So of course I wanted to see one. How special could one tree be that you can find that specific tree in google maps?!

Apparently, it IS pretty special. It had the history and all.
Ready?

Dum dum dum dum! Yup, that’s all there is to it.
And it’s right near the bridge with some decent flowers. Oh, and the bridge is lined up with sakura.

Walking along the bridge, I finally reach the Nago Castle Park.

That’s the sign saying Nago Castle Park.

There are 400 steps, if I remember correctly. And the steps are lined up with Sakura, which makes this an ideal hanami (flower viewing) spot. When I came, there was still some hints of sakura left (You can see a bit of pink in some of the pictures)

And here’s the view from the top of the steps. Oh, and the top contains the usual shrine.
