Cherry blossoms in Hachigata Castle

Hachigata Castle’s cherry blossoms are located on the site of Hachigata Castle.
The ruins of the castle have become parks, and the cherry blossoms are blooming in the large site.

However, it is a beautiful cherry tree which blooms powerfully.

This kind of cherry tree is named Edohigan, one parent of Someiyoshino.
It blooms a little earlier than Someiyoshino.
The cherry blossoms of Hachigata Castle are called “Ujikuni zakura”.This is named after the castle owner of the potted castle, Mr. Hojo Ujikuni.

The age of the tree is about 150 years old, and there is dignity in the appearance which keeps blooming for a long time.
Edohigan blooms in the ruins of the castle.However, the figure that blooms greatly by the book feels dignity.
“Blooming proudly” is exactly the perfect expression for this cherry tree.
Edohigan’s appearance at the ruins of the castle was full of the emotion of the history.

Cherry blossoms in Hachigata Castle

The cherry blossoms of Hachigata Castle are lit up at night at the best time of year.
There is a fascinating charm that is different from the situation at noon.
Fantastic night cherry blossoms attract the viewer.

In 2020, when I traveled, no lights were lit up due to the effects of the coronavirus.
I would also like to take back my calm and see how it is lit up.
