Gyoikou is a plant of the genus Prunus in the Rosaceae family. Sakura is a cultivation variety native to Japan that was born based on the Oshima cherry tree. The name has been seen since the middle of the Edo period, and its origin is close to the yellow color of aristocratic clothing. Another name seems to be "misogi (exorcism)".   The yellow of the robe in this photo is the yellow of the "Akiba Shrine" in Shimizu Town, Suwa City. This shrine has a number of large zelkova trees, and there are about three Shrine at the base, making it a very fantastic shrine that seems to appear in yellowtail work.  If you enter the Akiba Shrine and go to the back on the left, you will find this robe yellow. This cherry blossom blooms about two weeks later than Someiyoshino, and usually blooms 🌸 around Golden Week! The time of year is about the same time as the Double Cherry Blossom (Yae zakura). At the beginning of blooming, the inside of the petals is light green, and near the end of the flower, a light pink streak appears in the center! The trees have lost their momentum since the past, but as it is written on the signboard, the average age of the trees seems to be about 20 years. If you look closely, you can see that the tree was planted on May 25, 1975, so it is 49 years old this year. It's amazing, isn't it!! Also, don't you ♪ think that unlike the famous pink cherry blossoms, they are pale yellow-green and give off a wonderful color? After Someiyoshino, it is a pleasure every year to see the Double Cherry Blossom(Yae zakura) and this mii yellow.  Answer! This cherry blossom was written in post English by me on Instagram on January 18 of this year, and the "light green colored cherry blossom" was the yellow of ♪ this Akiba Shrine's robe Please take a look at the post in English. Also, as far as I know, it is a facility in Suwa City, but there was also a green cherry blossom that seemed to be a yellow robe on the premises of the pruned tree recycling facility (former Suwa City Cleaning Center) in Suwa City. This is a facility in Suwa City, so please take a look when you go to recycle pruned trees in early spring.   From next year onwards, if you can't make it in time for Someiyoshino around April, please add it to your options to see Mii Huang. Especially in Suwa City and Town/Village six cities near Suwa, there are such unusual cherry blossoms here! If you have any Information, not just cherry blossoms, I would ♪ like to go as much as possible!! Suwa Tourist Association We look forward to following you → @suwa_nagano Instagram!
