Vancouver is famous for its Japanese cherry blossoms. Vancouver’s 37,000 cherry blossoms all originated as a gift from Japan many years ago and we now have a festival to celebrate them as well. Other famous N.American cities with these beautiful trees also received them as gifts from Japan at one time, such as Washington DC, New York, Newark, Seattle.
Although very beautiful, it’s not fun parking under them as you can see by this picture. It literally snows under these trees!! You’ll need a blower to get them off, since wiping it with your hands or a brush doesn’t work so well.
