In Eastern Japanese town of Kawazu spring arrives early. The town is located outside of Tokyo and is already very famous for their 8000 cherry blossom trees that bloom every year. In February, the lush landscapes are very romantic.
In Japanese, the blossoms are known as sakura and they bloom in late March or early April. It is very interesting that Kawazu’s trees belong to a unique variety that flowers before other species. To enjoy the pretty shades of pink and the fragrant aromas, a small locomotive train takes visitors and other passengers on a journey.
The cherry blossoms are very symbolic and important in Japan. Their beauty is often equated to the brevity of life, so they represent the acceptance of karma and destiny but also the eventual welcoming of death. For these reasons they have become an identifying image for the country itself and appear often in Japanese art.
