You Can Witness Sakura Blooms All Lit Up in Winter at This Park
It's just as breathtaking as sakura in springtime.
Fuyu ni saku Sakura Light-up or the Lighting of Sakura that Blooms in Winter is currently held at Hirosaki Park (Oyo Park) in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture until February 29, 2020.
On the day when snow falls, it will be like Sakura Fubuki (a flurry of cherry blossoms).
The event found its beginning with the desire to create an illusion of Yoshino cherry trees in full bloom, even in winter. The cherry trees in the outer moat of Hirosaki Park are illuminated with pink lighting. At night when the snow is piled up on cherry blossom branches, a beautiful view of the cherry blossoms lighting up the night emerges, and you can enjoy a one-of-a-kind winter cherry blossom viewing. This season, 86 LED floodlights and other devices will be placed in an area of about 500 meters to color even more beautiful cherry blossoms in winter.
It's a great opportunity to take impressive photos.
"This light-up changes its appearance depending on the weather. The best time to see is the day when snow falls on the branches of cherry blossoms, and it looks like spring in full bloom. On the day of the snowstorm, it looks like a flurry of Sakura. This time, with the cooperation of related parties, in addition to the usual pink color, a mechanism that changes the lights to blue was also added. The lighting time is longer in the pink color, so visitors who will come to see the pink light up won’t be disappointed," said the person in charge.
It is a cold winter, but the chance to see cherry blossoms is worth it. Let's go see the Sakura that blooms in winter, which is just as fantastic, if not more, than the cherry blossoms in spring.
