One of the most famous cultivated cherry blossoms in temperate countries is the Yoshino Cherry. The petals are white or light pink and the flowers grow in clusters of 5 or 6 together.
On the last day of our hanami trip, we went to Yoshino-yama to view the white cherry blossoms at Simo-senbon, Naka-senbon, Kami-senbon and Oku-senbon. Senbon is an expression that you can view a thousand cherry trees at a glance. These cherry blossoms are viewed in chronological order starting from early April through late April. In this way, you can enjoy a beautiful cherry blossoms for a long period.
