Peach Blossoms near JR Kadohara St.

Pretty flowers bloom at the foot of mountains in Fukui

By Hiroshi Ohnuki    - 1 min read

Deep in the mountainous region in Fukui, you can find small, unmanned JR Kadohara Station. Trains only come four times a day to this station and usually not many people visit here. However, once a year in spring, people try to get here to see one thing - peach blossoms! There are many peach trees planted around the station and they bloom brilliantly in late April each year. Surrounded by the idyllic scenery of beautiful mountains, green fields, a tunnel and pretty one-car train, it truly looks like a scene from a fairy tale movie. If you'd like to see Japan of old times, here is the place for you! It takes about 1.5 hours to get here from JR Fukui Station.

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。
