The blossoms are finally blooming in the town of Yamanouchi, the town closest to the Snow Monkey Park. Here are a few photo’s to give you an impression of the colorful trees.
Here you see the Kakuma River with on the riverside a long line of blooming cherry blossom trees.
A close-up of cherry blossoms.
The photo below shows the first blossoms of Kanbayashi Onsen, the place you will pass when heading up the trail to the Snow Monkey Par.
Because of the Snow Monkey Park being on a higher altitude than the town of Yamanouchi the blossoms there are slower and still not in full bloom.
If you want to see the cherry blossoms of the Snow Monkey area up close, give the 1-day Snow Monkey & Cherry Blossom Tour a look.
