This wild cherry tree is over 400 years old, and it measures 14 meters tall; its branches extending for 32 meters east and west, and 26 meters north and south; and the diameter of its trunk is 7 meters. Its flowers are in a pale pink color. It is surrounded by fields of rape blossoms that bloom almost at the same time as the cherry blossoms, so visitors can enjoy both types of flowers at the same time.
