#1578 Japan

cherry blossom is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese cherryPrunus serrulata, which is called sakura after the Japanese ( or さくら).

Currently it is widely distributed, especially in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere including Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China, West Siberia, Iran, and Afghanistan. Along with the chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom is considered the national flower of Japan.

Thank you, Akiko !
