The Cloned Cherry Tree

As explained in this post, in order to make sure people far into the future can enjoy the Omuro Cherry Blossoms, there has been a project to clone and create a younger generation of cherry trees. The first sapling was planted not too long ago, but it is difficult to see because it is planted in the middle of the orchard.

But I was able to get this picture to share!

Cloned Omuro Cherry

It doesn’t look like much, but this is one of the trees that will make sure Omuro Cherries can be enjoyed for generations to come.

If you visit during the Cherry Blossom Festival keep an eye out for this little tree while you enjoy the blossoms!
