Sakura at Hijiyama Park

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 31 August 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

It was a cloudy day threatening rain. But I went up to this park on a mountain in the southern part of Hiroshima. I had read that it was a good place for Sakura. I found some.

Return to Japan
