KAWAZU SAKURA 2022 Early Bloom Cherry Blossoms in Shizuoka Japan

河津桜まつり 2022 ピンク色の花が美しい2月に咲く早咲き桜の風景 | 静岡県河津町

Every year in early February, I have been watching the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival 2022 in Kawazu Town, Kamo District, Shizuoka Prefecture Japan, where Kawazu Cherry Blossom, an early-blooming variety of cherry blossoms that blooms beautiful light red flowers, was born.
Kawazu cherry blossoms are a variety of cherry blossoms that are a natural cross between Oshima Zakura(Oshima Cherry Blossoms) and Kanhi Zakura(Kanhi Cherry blossoms), and are characterized by the light red petals derived from Kanhi zakura and the large flowers derived from Oshima zakura.
Mr. Iida, who lives in the town, brought back a 1m cherry tree that grew along the Kawazu River in Kawazu Town, Kamo District, Shizuoka Prefecture, and planted it in the garden. Since 1966, it has begun to bloom.
Subsequent academic research revealed that this cherry tree was a variety that did not exist until now, and in 1974 it was named Kawazu Sakura, and the following year it was designated as a tree in Kawazu Town.
It is said that the fact that volunteers of the townspeople planted about 850 Kawazu cherry trees on the embankment of the 4km section from the mouth of the Kawazu River became popular as a famous place for early blooming cherry blossoms.
The Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival will also be held during the period from the beginning of flowering to the beginning of scattering.
At this event, you can admire the scenery of pink flowers blooming along the Kawazu River, and at night, there will be a fantastic night cherry blossom light up in some sections.
In 2022, the flowering time was delayed, and the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival was extended by one week, and it was in full bloom at the end of the event, but it was a day when we could enjoy the arrival of spring a little earlier.
