A sea of red azaleas is seen in Komuroyama Park in Ito, Shizuoka Prefecture, on April 20, 2018. The park, spanning 35,000 square meters, boasts a total of 40 varieties of azalea including Beni kirishima. Although the azaleas have bloomed earlier than usual this year, it is expected that visitors will be able to admire the flowers during the forthcoming "Tsutsuji Festival," between April 29 and May 5.
