Ngoc Anh said although access to the commune is a bit tricky, the poetic experience is well worth it.

Cherry blossom season depends on weather and soil. In 2017, local cherry trees bloomed from early March, from mid-January in 2018, and from December in 2019 and 2020.

Cherry trees thrive in a temperate climate. In early winter, the trees typically shed all their leaves, then hibernate about two weeks before blooming for around one to two months.
