Vivacious Floral Venues in Miyazaki(February, 2009 )

 暦の上では立春を迎え、暖かい日が増えてきました。春になると花々が開花し、美しい風景で私たちを楽しませてくれます。今回は、県内の花の名所についてご紹介します。

 

 Once spring has come, you will most likely see people enjoying “Cherry Blossom Viewing”- or Hanami - in various locales. “Cherry Blossom Viewing” involves appreciating the bloom of the cherry blossoms and Japanese plums, and it is a quite popular spring leisure activity in Japan.

 Sakura (Cheery Blossom), the Japanese national flower, bloom in shades of white, rose-pink and dark-red, and they engage many people’s hearts and minds every year. Cherry Blossoms bloom from mid-March through mid-April. Nighttime illuminations and spring festivals coincide with this floral season, so we recommend contacting your local tourism department/association for more information.
