Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) in Full Bloom at Sanoh
It is now the best time of the year to enjoy the cherry blossoms at Sanoh’s Koga Plant in Ibaraki prefecture.
There are 92 cherry trees on the grounds of our Koga Plant, with the somei-yoshino (Yoshino cherry) being the main cultivar among other varieties, including yae-zakura*1 and shidare-zakura*2. The stunning beauty of the cherry blossoms in full bloom at Sanoh is well-known not only by our employees, but also by the local community, who enjoy the bloomy scenery every year.
Sakura is the Japanese word for “cherry blossom”, and, when translated literally, the characters that make up the name “Sanoh” mean “three cherry blossoms”. We will continue to strive to persistently maintain and grow these cherry trees, as they are also a symbol of Sanoh.
*1 Yae-zakura is a type of cherry tree that blooms with clusters of double-petaled blossoms.
*2 Shidare-zakura is a type of cherry tree with pendulous branches similar in appearance to weeping willows.
