In 1717, the 8th Shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune planted 100 cherry trees along the Mukojima riverbank, and the spot became popular for cherry blossom viewing. In 1883, when Okura Kihachiro planted an additional 1,000 trees here, the riverbank became full of cherry blossoms. Many simple teahouses were built along the riverbank for the use of visitors.
