It's short touring report.

 

Today is warm and comfy. I went to visit my ancestors' grave.

I'm leaving by motorcycle at 8:30.

motorcycle parking area

I make a yearly visit to Yoshino plum-grove park in Ome.

I got there late, there is not space in the parking lot. So, I have waited a few minutes to use a space.

entrance of Yoshino plum-grove park in Ome

There is a large sightseer. I paid 200yen(=2dollars), admission to the park. For your information, if you arrive at here early morning, you don't need to pay.

Most plums are breaking bud. I have visited here at the same time each year. Last year, the plum blossoms are in full bloom.

This year, it's been unseasonably cold here. Therefore the plum blossoms are late in blooming this year.

If you want to see the full bloom, please see the touring report of last year.(Please click the following image.)

Beni-Yae, Yoshino plum-grove park in Ome

Today, many tourists come to here.

There is a reason for crowd of people.

logged forest

The reason is it.

Ome city is decided to fall the all trees. Because many trees are infected "Plum pox virus" in this park. A cleared forest may regenerate in 10 years. We can not look at a beautiful views over several years. Therefore, many tourists come to here in this year.

I returned to the parking.

Hey! It's a bird dropping!! Oh my God!
