Kabura-sugi Japanese Cedar

Approximately 38.5 m tall and with a root circumference of 9.3 m, Kabura-sugi Japanese Cedar is one of the four Giant Japanese Cedar Trees of Dōgo Island. At a height of about 1.5 m, the trunk splits into six trunks that stretch toward the sky, creating its impressive shape. The tree is named Kabura-sugi because it is thought to resemble a kabura-ya, a whistling arrow that was used in the past in rituals and to signify the outbreak of war.
