Cherry Blossoms at Nishiyama Park

Aerial views of gorgeous cherry blossoms in Fukui!

By Hiroshi Ohnuki    - 1 min read

Nishiyama Park in Sabae City, Fukui, is most famous for its 50,000 azaleas in May.(Also for the adorable red pandas in the zoo.) But once spring comes, people visit this park to enjoy its beautiful 1,000 cherry trees in full bloom. As you can see in this video, there's virtually NO ONE in this park on weekdays despite the mountainful of gorgeous cherry blossoms. If you come to this park in spring, the striking contrast created by pale-pink cherry blossoms and still-green azaleas, and 1,000 fully blooming cherry trees decorating the hillside, will be all yours! For other seasonal beauty in this park, please see the links below.

I'm a professional photographer and videographer based in Fukui Prefecture. I'm either taking still photography of merchandise at my studio or shooting photos/videos of landscape, people, etc, out in the field upon my clients' request. At the moment, my interest lies in the video shooting using mini drone, and I'd like to share with you here the aerial videos I shot in various places in my hometown Fukui. 私は福井で写真/ビデオスタジオを経営しています。普段はスタジオで各種商品のスチール写真を撮影、もしくは顧客の要望に応じて各地へ赴き、写真・ビデオ撮影を行っています。現在マルチコプターによる空撮に凝っており、私の故郷福井で撮影した各地の空撮映像をジャパン・トラベルの読者にお届けしたいと思います。
