Sankein has long been famous as a famous place for plum blossoms. From February to March, about 600 white plums and red plums bloom wonderfully. The "Garyobai", which is a branch of a dragon crawling on the ground, and the "Ryokugakubai", which has a green calyx at the base of the petals, are rare sights.
