Over 7,000 picturesque and well-maintained graves spread across the huge area of 10 hectares (25 acres). Walk the stone paths enclosed with small gardens and shrubs, and study the modern and ancient graves decorated with flowers or covered in thick moss. Highlights include the cemetery's own police station and the grave of the last shogun of the Edo period, Tokugawa Yoshinobu. A stroll through the famous cherry tree valley is a must in spring.
