Yaezakura (Double-Flowered Cherry Blossom)
【 八重桜 】
- Things to See, Tastes to Try -
The Chimura District around Mt. Zukko is a famous area for double-flowered sakura, known as Yaezakura. After the Second World War, a renowned agriculturalist planted a great number of these trees, and today some 2,500 Yaezakura trees are said to be growing across the Chimura District. The flowers are harvested during the the double-flowering stage and prepared for culinary use. The harvest is a common sight of spring.
The confectioners in the city sell a limited-season “Hadano Sakura ♪ Pudding” made using the Yaezakura flowers. The flowers are also used to make sake and in aromatic goods. These products are recommended by the Hadano City Tourist Association.
