In a few weeks time this big old cherry tree will be in full bloom, as 'Sakura', or cherry blossom season begins. Still, I think it looks kind of cool in its winter state.
The range in the background is called Yatsugatake. Way back it was a volcano even bigger than Fuji until it blew its top. Legend goes that Fuji was jealous, as this volcano was bigger, and caused the eruption!
