Tourists snap photos of a snow-capped Mount Fuji, a five-story pagoda, and 650 Yoshino cherry trees in full bloom at Arakurayama Sengen Park in the city of Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi Prefecture, on April 20, 2017. Temperatures in the region north of the base of Mount Fuji remained low through April, even seeing accumulation of snow. According to the municipal government, the park's trees reached full bloom on April 18, five days later than last year. The Arakurayama Sengen Park Cherry Blossom Festival that began on April 8 has been extended by one week, until April 23, to accommodate the timing of the blossoms. (Mainichi)
