A cherry park in Helsinki

A cherry park in Helsinki

One of the joys of Spring is being able to experience the cherry blossom. Although they came a bit late this Spring, it was such a beauty to enjoy. It was wonderful to be able to see them in full bloom here in Helsinki.

The Cherry Park which is located in the Roihuvuori district of Helsinki was opened in 2007. There are about 150 Cherry trees in the park which were planted with the help of the Japanese community in Helsinki. Of course, one of my dreams is to visit Japan during the Hanami season. But for now, I can enjoy this season without traveling far!
