A wide variety of cherry blossoms decorate the park of the Higashiyama Botanical Garden (Nagoya Zoo), about 1,000 cherry trees of 100 varieties bloom from mid-March to the end of April annually in the city of Nagoya, Aichi.

When the botanical garden opened in 1937, many cherry blossoms were planted, making it one of the best and most beautiful places to enjoy cherry blossoms in the region. Higashiyama Botanical Garden is the 13th most popular cherry blossom viewing spot in Aichi Prefecture. In mid-April you can see the yellow-green Gyoiko, the dark red Kanzan, and in late April the Kenrokuen Kikuzakura, which has over 200 petals. We can also see the Yoshino cherry tree in front of Kitazono Kabasha which is about 13 meters tall and has a trunk circumference of about 170 cm.
