Japan has been a favorite destination of Filipinos in recent years. No doubt, there's a lot to love about the Land of the Rising Sun and one of them is the famed cherry blossom viewing (Hanami) across the country's many expansive parks. But what if we tell you there's no need to fly to Japan just to see and experience the blooming of these double-tap worthy trees? Because the first-ever sakura park is opening in Benguet, CNN Philippines reports. To mark the 40th anniversary of the allegiance between Japan’s Kochi prefecture and Benguet province, over 30 cherry blossom trees and other plants from Japan were planted at the top of a mountain and these are expected to bloom after three years.
We can already picture the magnificent view once the trees grow and the flowers come into full beauty. The best part? You won't need a visa!
