Cherry Blossoms of Okazaki Castle

Pink clouds surround the castle of Ieyasu

By Justin Dart    - 1 min read

When sakura bloom in eastern Aichi people head to Okazaki park, home to Okazaki castle. The paths are lined with stalls selling everything from squid on a stick to fried chicken, castella cakes to chocolate covered bananas.

Thousands of people flock to the park in the first weeks of April for barbecues under the pink clouds. This coincides with the Ieyasu Gyoretsu parade.

I am a country boy transplanted from Wisconsin in the USA to central Gifu Prefecture.The main focus of my life in Japan has been to introduce people to the world and the world to local communities and culture through international exchanges and educational programs. My hope is that people will hang a right at Nagoya, get off the beaten path and explore Gifu...what I call The Jewel of Discoveries.アメリカの田舎で育った男、岐阜県の田舎に引っ越しました。ジャスティン・ダートです。僕の日本での生活は「世界を紹介し、世界の地域における文化と生活を、国際交流や教育プログラムを通して紹介する」という目標です。観光客が名古屋で右を曲がって、岐阜県の旅を試してみたいという希望を持っています。岐阜県:発見の宝。多年前,我从美国的乡村搬到日本岐阜県的中部。現在我最大的志向是向本地人介绍世界各地的文化及把当地文化介绍给世界各地的人。通过国际交流和教育方案,我希望會有更多的人开始去探索岐阜県的美丽与文化。
