While the Cherry Blossom Festival has already begun in February 10, most of the trees in Japan have yet to actually bloom. All save for 8,000 or so trees in Kawazu, Shizuoka.

The town is a three-hour train ride from Tokyo and is home to a special variety of early-blooming cherry blossoms. About 8,000 trees is said to attract around a million visitors to view the cherry blossoms that start blooming in February. Cherry blossoms usually bloom in March, reports The Huffington Post.

Of course, visitors can’t help but take loads of photos and upload them to their respective social media accounts. Below are some of the photos taken from Kawazu. The festival lasts until March 10, so travelers still have some time to book a plane ticket. Alfred Bayle/JB
