During early April each year, approximately 800 Yoshino cherry trees bloom in the Kaizu Osaki area for around 4 kilometers. This stretch of Lake Biwa's shoreline includes older cherry trees (estimated to be over 80 years old) alongside more recently planted ones.
The area has been designated as one of Japan's Top 100 cherry blossom viewing destinations, and it's also regarded as one of the eight scenic spots of Lake Biwa.
Like any flower event, the timeframe to catch the blooms at their best can differ slightly from year to year. Updates are posted on the official website closer to the season.
