hkskyline's 2017 in Kakunodate's Cherry Blossom Paradise

For cherry blossom fans, Kakunodate in Tohoku is the place to go in the spring. This old castle town dating from the 17th century has lots of cherry trees in its samurai district as well as along its riverfront.

Cherry trees line the Hinokinai riverfront, which is just a short walk from the samurai district. The trees were planted in 1934 to celebrate the birth of Akihito, Japan's current emperor.
