Today I started cherry blossoms tour in Hamadori Region, Fukushima Pref. I took a JR Ban-etsu East Line train with my bike in a carry bag and got off at Ogawago Sta. in Iwaki City. In this remote district of the city there was an amazing cherry tree in front of a local shrine. This weeping cherry tree, as you can see in the photo above, stood right in front of Ogawa Suwa Shrine since 500 years ago. Hundreds of people visited here today to appreciate the tree just in full bloom. A different view from a lower part is also shown below.

Then I pedaled toward east and found another large weeping cherry tree in Naraha Town as shown above. The tree stood in the precinct of Seiruji Temple located near JR Kido Sta. The branches really looked like a waterfall as I added a close-up view of a branch below.
