The cherry blossoms are in full bloom at Matsugamine in Nakago Ward, Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture and are a delight to the eyes of visitors.
Due to the differing altitudes between Joetsu and Myoko, the cherry blossoms flower at different rates. The Matsugamine cherry blossoms are at a higher altitude and are slower to flower, so they reach full bloom after the Takada Castle Site Park cherry blossoms. As the Takada Castle Site Park cherry blossoms have shed their flowers, the Matsugamine blossoms are reaching their peak.

There are about 1,500 cherry trees around the pond, and they are illuminated at night.
According to the locals, it is likely that the cherry blossom viewing can be enjoyed until the end of this week (April 19th).
