This pine tree was once located in the Yudagawa Hot Spring area, which was submerged after the Kamafusa Dam was constructed.
The tree, reputed to be 600 years old, is familiar to the inhabitants of Kawasaki Town and is called “Pine of crane” because it looks as though a crane is spreading its wings.
It was transplanted to a plateau along the national road in 1968 and transferred here in 2004.
