Shikizakura cherry blossom trees that flower in spring and autumn are seen in peak bloom surrounded by fall foliage at a park in the city of Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, central Japan, on Nov. 25, 2020. There are about 1,200 shikizakura cherry trees at the popular sightseeing spot "Senmi Shikizakura no Sato," where the trees cover a mountain in a sheet of pale pink. According to the local tourism association, the annual cherry blossom festival in autumn was canceled this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The autumn cherry blossoms can be enjoyed until early December.
