Cherry Blossoms That Bloom in Winter(Fuyu-ni-saku Sakura)


Adding color and extra beauty to the December landscape

Several cherry trees (sakura trees) stand in an area along National Route 311 – a region across the river from Ichinose-oj. One of them may start to bloom from late November to early December, and can be in full bloom at the end of year. It is not yet clearly known what kind of cherry tree these are. Many people photograph the flowers of these trees, and there are street lamps nearby, which help to provide a breathtaking scenery of “yozakura” (cherry blossoms at night).
