Enjoy Plum-blossoms!

Hi.This is Ena from Hiroshima Hana Hostel.
What is your purpose of visiting Japan?
Recently,the cherry blossoms(Sakura) in Japan are super famous all over the world. It is said that the best time to see Sakura will be around Apr 4th in Hiroshima this year.

As soon as the cherry blossom blooms, then the crowds will follow.
However, I personally think  plum-blossoms(Ume) are about as pretty as them.  
Ume (plum-blossoms)
The Shukkeien Japanese Garden in Hiroshima is known as a popular spot to admire beautiful plum-blossoms.There are over 100 plum-trees with red and white flowers in the garden.
NOW,they are in full bloom and you will be able to enjoy them till next weekend!
Before the SAKURA season,why don't you enjoy the Japanese spring with plum-blossoms without crowds?
