Spring is close, Nago cherry-blossoms start to bloom
The winter in Okinawa has hardly started, but the first sign of the approaching spring is already here as the Hikanzakura in the Nago Castle Park in Nago City have begun to blossom.
The well-known Nago Sakura Festival is scheduled to be held on Jan. 25th and 26th. As usual, the festival venue will be the Nago Central Park and Sakura Park.
In the evenings from Jan. 18th through 26th the park is illuminated so visitors and locals can enjoy the beautiful sight also during night time.
