In the Kyoto Japanese Park in Konya, Japanese cherries, which are one of Japan's most important symbols, have bloomed with colorful flowers.
The Japanese cherries in Konya's Kyoto Japanese Park have bloomed. This tree, also known as the cherry blossom tree, blooms in mid-April and sheds its flowers in early May. Its most prominent features include heralding the arrival of spring, shedding its flowers approximately 10 days after blooming, and, like other cherry blossom trees, not bearing fruit.
In the Kyoto Japanese Park, which was constructed in Konya as part of the sister city relations between Konya Metropolitan Municipality and Kyoto city of Japan, dozens of Japanese cherries can be seen. These trees can also be found in many other parks in the city. Due to being one of Japan's biggest symbols, it is forbidden to export the seeds of this tree outside the country. It is known that the seeds of the Japanese cherries have been sent to nine countries solely for the purpose of fostering friendship and developing relations between the two countries. The Japanese cherries, with their beautiful flowers, mesmerize onlookers and have become a popular destination for photography enthusiasts.
