Plum blossoms in foothills of Mt. Fuji

About 300 plum trees of 30 varieties with both red and white blossoms can be found in Iwamotoyama Park, in the foothills of Japan's most famous mountain. Early-blooming varieties began to blossom in late January, about two weeks earlier than usual due to the mild winter. Many photography enthusiasts visit to capture images of plum blossoms with a snow-capped Mt. Fuji in the background.
