Why? – This is the question being asked about the beloved Cherry Blossom trees in Kanazawa.
Things have changed in Kanazawa recently. The city known for its gardens, old tea districts and samurai houses is a beautiful example of traditional Japan. Perhaps it is the new blue-nosed Shinkansen service that opened in mid-March slashing journey time from Tokyo to Kanazawa from 4hrs to 2.5hrs. Tourist numbers to the old city on the Japan Sea Coast have increased considerably with the new train. Is this the reason that a single tree in the city has blossomed blue? – Who knows!?!
This is the famous cherry blossom of Japan. This traditional city, is not use to non-pink cherry blossom. It just doesn’t happen. Is it a one off occurance? We don’t know. Mysterious Japan….
Perhaps we should add it to our interactive cherry blossom guide –
