Sakura and Greens in Mountains - 山桜と新緑


The season of cherry blossoms is about to end in mountains now. Here in Kusatsu Onsen, the altitude is over 1000 meters with nice, cool air, and we usually come here in early May to watch “yamazakura” or wild cherry trees that have a charming pinky color. This year we were a bit late, I think. Instead, the young, green leaves in the mountains for example in Agatsuma Valley are so refreshing to watch now.
