Spring has come to Nagano

Our long winter is finally coming to a close. Pictured are apricot blossoms in Nagano City’s Matsushiro district. Along with nearby Mori “Apricot Village”, the area is Japan’s largest for growing apricots.
In Nagano, the apricot blossoms will be followed by sakura (cherry), then pear and finally apple blossoms. See the new Cherry Blossom Report page for real-time updates.
