Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom in Fukushima

The Yomiuri Shimbun

People stroll beneath cherry blossoms in full bloom in Kitakata, Fukushima Prefecture, on Wednesday. About 1,000 cherry trees are planted along a 3-kilometer-long promenade that was created at the site of a former local Nicchu Line station of the now-defunct Japanese National Railways. The Nicchu Line was abandoned in 1984.
