By Radica Sooknarine    - 1 min read

All seasons in Japan are very unique, and in each one there is a major attraction that highlights it. Spring is no different as "hanami" or cherry blossom viewing is a very popular event throughout Japan.

There are several spots throughout the country but Miyagi boasts one of the top spots with the senbonzakura at Ogawara. Just imagine seeing a thousand sakura trees laden with those beautiful flowers at just one glance! The trees line the river and visitors can enjoy local delicacies at food stalls located nearby.

Ogawara is definitely a must-see for hanami enthusiasts. Mark it on your calendar!
