The biggest tree in Shimane

A walk from Tsuwano to Masuda 7154

This is the biggest tree in Shimane Prefecture!
It is located in a small village just downstream of Nichihara Town on the Tsuwano River.
It is a Kusunoki , a Camphor tree, and last time it was measured it had a span of 12.3 metres, and a height of 29.5 metres.
I seriously doubt that every tree in the prefecture has been measured :).

  1. Really love your photos. I'm also currently living in one of Japan's unfamiliar places: Otaki, which is located in Nagano's Kiso Valley. I hope you'll have a look!
