Seiryuji Temple

清隆寺

The final destination on the cherry blossom front

Sights, Spring

Seiryuji Temple is known as a popular venue for the chishimazakura cherry trees, which cannot be seen on the flatlands of Honshu. Among the trees are some as old as 150 years. Cherry blossoms begin blooming in February down in Kyushu and make their way up the Japanese islands. At this place, where the cherry blossoms make their final appearance, the chishimazakura cherry trees found within the temple grounds bloom elegant flowers to make for a sight that alerts one to the late advent of spring in eastern Hokkaido.
