Cherry blossom avenue, Shinhidaka, Hokkaido.


The spot in Hokkaido to best appreciate the cherry blossoms must certainly be the Nijukken Cherry Tree Avenue (二十間道路桜並木) in Shinhidaka, about three hours by car from Sapporo.  Set in the heart of Japan’s version of Kentucky, you can admire the blossoms surrouned by the season’s new thoroughbred foals. Shinhidaka is thoroughbred breeding central for Japan and the surrounding country is as green as any Bluegrass Kentucky field.
