Photo Journal: Seasonal selfie

Visitors take a selfie on the premises of the Kumamoto Castle in Kumamoto, where cherry trees are in full bloom, on April 9, 2017. The castle has been closed since it was badly damaged by the April 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, but the Miyukizaka area of the castle grounds was temporarily opened on April 9 to allow visitors to view the cherry blossoms. Cherry trees in Kumamoto reached full bloom on April 8, six days later than last year and seven days later than normal. (Mainichi)
