Horikawa Canal and Ogaya Bridge

高知市大鋸屋橋~堀川(Kochi-shi Ogayabashi ~ Horikawa)
Walk or take a sightseeing boat along the Horikawa Canal where cherry blossoms bloom on both sides
In the spring the Horikawa Canal going into Kagami River (Kagamigawa, 鏡川), located in Kochi City, offers an immersive experience as a 1km row of cherry trees bloom on either bank and reflect pinkly on the water. Besides having a picnic under cherry blossom trees (a centuries-old tradition in Japan called hanami), another popular way to enjoy these glorious flowers is to walk or take a sightseeing boat along a river.
You can gaze at the pinkish white petals swaying in the breeze during the day, and enjoy a whole different side to their beauty at night when the trees are lit up after dark.
