2009/04/14 - Cherry Blossom Report: Himeji
April 14, 2009 - beyond peak
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.
