The Cherry Blossom season, or Sakura, is almost at an end for most parts in Japan but there are other regions which are just beginning to enjoy the beautiful bloom of these colourful flowers. In particular, the Eastern and Northern parts are now celebrating the fully bloomed flowers of Sakura.
In the Nagano prefecture, you’ll be able to find Ueda-city which can be found in the central region of the island of Honshu. There, they’ll be having a festival called “Ueda-jyou Senbonzakura Matsuri” (Ueda Castle Thousands of Cherry Trees Festival) which will be held from April 5th through to the 21st. And who should come to the party but probably one of the most well-loved Vocaloids, the blue haired Hatsune Miku. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event so she’ll be providing her song, “Senbonzakura”, as the anniversary theme.
Below you’ll be able to see the promotional clip put together by the organiser of the event as well as the 10th anniversary promo poster.
