The Cherry Blossom Star Fort – Goryokaku Tower

2023 Hokkaido Flower Season, Japan

The cherry blossoms at the Hakodate Flower Attraction, Goryokaku Tower, and the Yoshino cherry blossom benchmark tree at Hokkaido Shrine in Sapporo, are officially in bloom, with the Yoshino cherry tree having broken the record for earliest bloom by 16 days last Friday.

We came across this beautiful stock photo of the cherry blossoms at Goryokaku Tower, with the star-shaped fortress clearly visible and truly breath taking. This week is expected to be the most beautiful full bloom period, so if any of our fans are heading over by train, make sure to snap some photos and share your cherry blossom experiences!
