Uchikawa うちかわ
River where we drift to center of city area, and row of cherry blossom trees is beautiful in the riverside
It is got close as citizen's river for a long time, and Uchikawa flowing through Tsuruoka city area slowly is said to be model of "five ken of river" coming up in novel of Shuhei Fujisawa and river that it was.
Neighboring rows of cherry blossom trees differ from turnout of Tsuruoka Park in one flavor again; is tasteful, and floating of lanterns is performed in Bon according to the old calendar (sonaidaisai) of Aug, too.
In addition, various bridges were built over Uchikawa and were named because one of the Naka, vermilion nurino "three snow Bridge" (miyukibashi) were able to see Miyama of Mineyama, Mt. Chokai-san, Mt. Gassan beautifully at all.
