Tokyo gardens in full bloom for first time in 3 years

TOKYO - About 200 spring rose clusters are in full bloom in a Tokyo garden, delighting visitors for the first time in three years with their vibrant colors.

The Kyu-Furukawa Gardens in Kita Ward were closed for the past two years when roses were at their best due to the spread of the coronaviruses. The place is known for its roses, and about 100 varieties, including Peace and Hatsukoi First Love, are in bloom.

Visitors enjoyed taking pictures of a Western-style building and roses together, commenting: Even with a mask on, the fragrance reaches me, and it's really worth seeing. There have been many days with low temperatures this year from around mid-April this year, resulting in a later blooming period, according to the gardens. It is expected that visitors will be able to enjoy the colorful roses in red, yellow, pink, and other colors until around May 22.
