Sakura no Sato Park さくらの里の桜
Year-round blossoms at Sakura-no-Sato Park
Beautiful cherry blossoms bloom all year long at this park at the foot of Mt. Omuro . Every part of Japan has its own timing and special spot for cherry blossom viewing in spring, but Sakura-no-Sato Park has blossoms in other seasons as well. While spring is still the peak, when over 3,000 trees bloom, the season lasts until September, and even rarer varieties open in October and during winter.
