Information about the Benten Zakura

At the base of the cherry blossoms, there is a shrine made of stone that is enshrined; legend says that "the cherry blossoms were planted by parents as a memorial for their daughter who threw herself into the pond, having been troubled the fact that she was not permitted to return to her parents' home from her husband’s house." It is one of Takine's three major shidare-zakura (weeping cherry blossom trees).
