Every year during spring time many Asian countries are organising festivals where they celebrate the time of the cherry blossoms. Only for about two weeks the trees are in full blossom, and around this time there are a few annual cherry blossom festivals in Korea, too. I hadn’t been in the country at that time but thanks to a relatively cold spring, the time of the blooming started a little later then expected. You can see the cherry trees in various places all over Cheongju, for example along the river that runs all the way through the city.
Most of the following shots are taken somewehre else however, one morning while driving to work I spotted a whole street that was lined with cherry trees. It starts near Myeongam Resort and goes all the way to Cheongju University.
On my first trip to Myeongam Valley there were beautiful cherry trees alongside the carpark at the park entrance:
In Danyang they had illuminated the trees at night:
