Two birds nuzzle in the branches of a cherry tree, one of some 800 lining the banks of the Kawazu River in Kawazu, Shizuoka Prefecture, on Feb. 13, 2017. The trees, which extend some 4 kilometers from the mouth of the river, are in full bloom -- an early sign of the coming spring. Owing to a string of warm days in January, the trees bloomed about 10 days earlier than usual this year. The blossoms will also be lit up nightly until March 10. (Mainichi)
