*Cedar Avenue of Nikko

Cedar Avenue of Nikko
It is proud of history of 300 years.

There are three avenues, which reach to Nikko. For example, these are Onari Avenue, Aizu-nishi Avenue and Reiheishi Avenue. These three avenues confluence in Imaichi City, and is recognized as Nikko Avenue today. Cedars grow in those three avenues, and total length of these is 37km. It is recorded on the Guinness Book of Records as the longest road of trees in the world.

Masatsuna Matsudaira took 20 years to plant. He served for the first three successive shoguns of Tokugawa such as Ieyasu, Hidetada and Iemitsu. Masatsuna contributed it in the 32nd anniversary of Ieyasu's death. 13000-cedar trees remain, and some trees have unique stories.
