Yaezakura Is Japanese For Double Cherry Blossoms.

Saitama Prefecture is listed as having 3 of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots, in Kumagaya Sakuratsutsumi, Omiya Park Saitama and Nagatoro.

In the middle of spring, after Someiyoshino, the most popular single petal cherry blossoms are over, Yaezakura, double petalled cherry blossoms start to bloom with their gorgeous pink flowers.

Yaezakura is also the word used to describe the final moments in salt production (because the bubbling salt resembles double cherry blossoms) in the Agehama style of salt making, as has been practised in Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture for over 500 years.
