Since our team pick Japan as our choosen country, we wanted to share some information that catches our eyes in Japan. Which is.....*drum rolls* Miharu Takizakura!
oh wow! What's that?
well, actually it is an ancient cherry tree in Miharu, Fukushima Prefecture, in northern Japan. it has been confirmed that the tree is over 1000 years old! Its light pink flowers spread in all directions from the branches, like a waterfall and hence its name “Takizakura”, which means “waterfall cherry blossoms” in Japanese. It is a popular cherry blossom spot with around 300,000 people visiting the 12 meter-high national treasure every year. Many Japanese people regard it as the unofficial number one tree in all of Japan and it is a designated National Natural Monument of Japan.
so.. go and have a visit!
the best way to go and visit is on mid to late of April.
