Cherry Blossom Live Cam 2010

Enjoy the sakura (cherry) blossoms and the view of the Japan Alps (if the weather is clear) with our high-resolution live cam!
We installed the camera at the north road of Matsumoto Castle. The Castle park is lit up on April 8-17 from 6pm-10pm, so you can enjoy sakura images even at night.

Daily Photos

You can experience the sakura blossoms from beginning to end by these thumbnails of previous photos (from around 9:45 each day).
