From April 11, 2014 to 13, I traveled in Hokuriku.

I went round Tedori Ravine, Yamanaka Onsen, Wakura Onsen, Wajima, Noto mainly in Ishikawa Prefecture.

I thoroughly enjoyed ravines and hot springs, seacoasts, cherry trees and flowers.

I introduce the wonderful those with photo several times.


I introduce splendid cherry tree of each place

While driving, I watched cherry tree in full bloom as I went from Shiga Prefecture to Toyama Prefecture.

Especially in Fukui Prefecture, Ishikawa Prefecture and Toyama Prefecture, cherry trees were planted everywhere.

  1. Loveliest of trees the cherry now,
    Is hung with bloom along the bough,
    And stands about the woodland ride
    Wearing white for Eastertide.

    • Thank you. Is the cherry tree blooming in your country? Isn’t it a time of Easter in your country?

      • It is Easter Sunday here in England and the cherry tree in my garden is just coming into full blossom. The world feels quite lovely.

      • I now understand that the world feels cherry tree quite lovely.

  2. Beautiful…
