I rely on these postcards a lot, and I wish this card had come out last year… I was in Fukushima around this time, and the cherries were spectacular! If I’d known to go see Miharu’s famous waterfall-like cherry tree, I would have pictures to post for it now. Unfortunately, I didn’t know about it, so I didn’t get a chance to see it!
Anyway, Fukushima’s newest postcard features the famous waterfall cherry tree in Miharu. It’s considered by many to be the most beautiful tree in Japan, and is over 1000 years old. Due to its popularity and beauty, it is perhaps the most-visited single tree in Japan!
For those interested in visiting to see it, this is the month! You can find more information on how to get there here.
