2009/04/14 - Himeji Report


by francois

Himeji Castle
April 14, 2009 - beyond peak

Himeji Castle is a large castle located in the city of Himeji. There are approximately 1000 cherry trees on the castle grounds.

The cherry blossom season has nearly passed at Himeji Castle. The rain today will surely hasten the process. There are a few trees still near full bloom, but for the most part the cherry trees have lost the majority of their petals. There are also some late blooming Yaezakura, which can be found in the garden area west of Sannomaru Square.
