Funaoka Castle Ruins Park and hitomesenbonzakura in 2011 | Shibata town and, Ogawara town in Miyagi Prefecture Japan


This is Funaoka Castle Ruins Park in Shibata-cho, Shibata-gun, Miyagi Prefecture Japan, and Shiroishikawa-tsuzumi-hitomesenbonzakura in Ogawara town.
It is known as the most famous cherry blossom spot in Miyagi prefecture for tourists.In 2011, the cherry blossom festival was canceled due to the turmoil caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11.

Although the number of visitors was lower than usual, a large number of people came to see the unchanging scenery and the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom.

The coastal area of Miyagi Prefecture suffered a lot of damage from the tsunami of the Great East Japan Earthquake, but the Shiroishikawa-tsuzumi-hitomesenbonzakura in the inland area had the same beautiful cherry blossoms as usual.

Cherry blossoms and Zao Mountains viewed from the vicinity of Peace Kannon at the summit of Funaoka Castle Park.

Even if the cherry blossoms are lit up at night, they will be canceled in 2011.

Along with the Yoshino cherry tree at Funaoka Castle Park, the red weeping cherry tree with beautiful red flowers was also at its best.

Although many precious lives have been lost in the tsunami, the Shiroishi River flowing near Funaoka Castle Park and the Shiroishikawa-tsuzumi-hitomesenbonzakura and are flowing slowly.
This calm river flow can sometimes turn into a rough flow that can endanger people’s lives.

Natural disasters can be unpredictable when and what happens.
It had the feel sadness in view of the coastal areas that had changed completely overnight.However, I think that it was the spring of 2011 when the scenery was the same as usual and a temporary sense of security was felt.
