Iwashiro Large Plum Orchard
Iwashiro Large Plum Orchard is an extensive ume plum grove of 30ha with nearly 20,000 ume plum trees being cultivated.
During February, the best time to see the grove, a variety of events are held, mainly on the weekends, such as mochi maki (rice cake winding ritual) and games, and the groves are bustling with visitors.
The difference with the Minabe Plum Orchard is that this ume plum grove has been made by local youth who worked together to cultivate mountain land and plant the ume trees, a product of the power of youth.
