Cherry blossoms blooming on Misawa Air Base

For most areas in Japan, cherry blossoms have bloomed and blown away, and their trees are now covered with rich green leaves.

Located at the northern end of mainland Japan, Misawa Air Base is now sporting gorgeous pinkish colors.

Low temperature and cold rains delayed the cherry blossoms from blooming earlier. But it’s finally springtime in Misawa!  The fantastic pinkish colors are expected to decorate Misawa until the beginning of May.
