Shirataka part 3

We viewed more cherry blossoms around Shirataka on Tuesday, including some around a Shinto shrine where we the only vistors.


Then we went to see two really old trees - including one that was 800 years old and another, beside a shrine, that was 1200 years old. 

Finally we went to a more conventional hanami (cherry blossom viewing) in a park at Kaminoyama.  We saw these blossoms from the shinkansen on the way here on Monday, but we didn't realise at the time.
