Kabura-sugi [Okinoshimacho]

The three 600 year old giant cedar trees of Oki

Said to be 600 years old, the Kabura-sugi branches out about 1.5 meters off the ground into 6 sections. This tree, representative of the cedars near the Sea of Japan (Ura-sugi, Ashu-sugi) has different theories as to its naming, such as that it looks like a turnip (kabu) or that it comes from the local accent's pronunciation of "Nakamura no Kamuro-sugi".
