Japan:

Another famous avenue of trees but where is this beauty?
 
Cedar Avenue of Nikkō, Japan
 
Stretching for 22 miles, the world’s longest tree-lined avenue dates back to the early 17th-century.
 
Despite not being a single continuous road, the Cedar Avenue of Nikkō in Japan is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest tree-lined avenue in the world.
 
Matsudaira Masatsuna, a samurai lord who served Ieyasu in his youth, began planting cryptomeria trees imported from Kii Province to honor his former master, continueing to plant them for over 20 years until his death. By 1648, about 15,000 trees had been planted along the Cedar Avenue.
 
After Masatsuna’s death, the trees were handed over to the governor of Nikkō, who tended them with the utmost care. Despite numerous discussions of lumbering, the Cedar Avenue was protected and preserved by both the government and the public. Even today, nearly 400 years after the first planting, about 12,500 trees have survived despite the road still being active.
