Cherry Blossoms

You don’t bump into cherry trees in Finland in every corner. Luckily there is a park in Roihuvuori, Helsinki called Kirsikkapuisto (direct translation is Cherry park), where you can find 150 cherry trees.

All of the 150 trees are gifts from Japanese individuals, companies and associations operating in Finland.
