No, Those Aren’t Cherry Blossoms, but Plum Tree Blossoms "Ume," a Different Kind of Beautiful!
Around Souri Pond in Chita-City is located the best plum grove in the whole prefecture, with approximately 6,000 trees representing 25 species, and a plum festival is held there from mid-February until mid-March, when the plum trees are in glorious bloom.
