People are enjoying the cherry blossoms from Koganei Bridge. The most beautiful scenery stretched for two kilometers upstream and two kilometers downstream from the bridge. It is not clear when the cherry trees were planted at Tamagawa Waterway because different documents give different dates. However, the Koganei Cherry Tree Monument (still existing near Koganei Bridge) puts it at 1737. Records show that Kawasaki Heiemon Sadataka, the caretaker of Musashino Shinden, and others planted cherry trees on both sides of the waterway near Koganei Bridge. Taken around 1897.
