Yet a lot of local people enjoy the cherry blossoms here at the pond.

There are only a few trees whose blossoms are in bloom, but most of them will bloom fully in a few days.

Each year, NHK broadcasts one hour drama about historically famous person.
This year, Sanada Nobushige, known as Sanada Yukimura is the main character.
The name of the drama is “Sanada-maru”; it’s something like “Fort Sanada”

Sanada Yukimura was on Toyotomi side.
Toyotomi completely lost in the Osaka Summer War in 1615. Tokugawa won and Tokogawa Family’s era continued until 1868.
He is admired as a hero.

This is Sanada Yukimura.
