Views: ‘Cherry Blossom Mountain Park’ – Japan

“Sunday Morning” takes us this spring Sunday to a setting known in English as “Cherry Blossom Mountain Park” outside Tokyo, home to some 10,000 cherry trees. Videographer: Jiro Akiba.

The aptly named Sakurayama Park, which translates to Cherry Blossom Mountain Park, has around 10,000 cherry trees. The park has around 7,000 Fuyuzakura cherry trees, which bloom in the winter and the spring, as well as around 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees which bloom in the spring. During the blooming periods, the park is lit up at night, giving it a surreal, fluffy appearance. Tea ceremony events are held in the daytime during peak viewing seasons.
