Though Miharu is a small town in Fukushima prefecture, there are many old cherry trees. After watching Takizakura, I exited the bus at the outskirts of town and started to walk for searching cherry blossoms. I could find a big cherry trees and temples here and there, and there were many stone statues of Buddhism by the side of roads. I was very pleased with this town.
