These days, I have an elegant habit of getting up early and admiring cherry blossoms.
On this day, I went to a spot with early blooming cherry blossoms, which is a 10 minute walk from Shijo-Karasuma.
It is an impressive "Kyu (Old) Seitoku Junior High School" with continuous arched windows that enter the west of Muromachi on Takatsuji-dori.
In order to send out the graduates, the cherry trees "spring tide", which are said to have been bred to bloom in March every year, are in full bloom!
The pale pink rows of cherry trees spread out as if they were literally adding flowers to the school building in the nesting season.
The former Kyu Seitoku Junior High School was closed about 20 years ago due to the merger and is now used as a community facility.
The Harumeki-zakura cherry tree, which is still blooming this spring, seems to be giving encouragement to graduates and people on the road all over Japan.
There are also flower beds with tulips and leaf buttons around the cherry trees and in front of the entrance.
Although there are no graduates or current students, the cherry trees and well-maintained flowerbeds convey the school's spring scenery.
