Junzo Nojima and Stamford's Cherry Trees: A Kamishibai Presentation
Different cherry blossoms
We use the word "cherry tree" in general, but actually there are a lot of species. There were 17 species such as "Yoshino cherry", "Kanzan cherry", "Weeping cherry", "Mountain cherry", "Bean cherry", "Ukon cherry", and so on, among the original cherry trees that Junzo presented. After that, Junzo presented other saplings also at the station, the schools, the library and so on. It is said that there were over 200 trees in all.
