There is a canal for supplying water to Nagoya Castle from a stream of a natural river named Shonai-river running at northern part of Nagoya City. The construction was completed in 1612 during Edo period. Now the canal was lined with cherry trees. The sign standing beside the trees says ” The trees of “Somei-yoshino” was planted by the young men's association in this town in 1954.” They are so huge and showing wonderful flowers. I could not believe that they are just the same age as me.
