Cherry blossoms & five-story pagoda in Ikegami Honmonji temple

I went to Ikegami Honmonji temple that was founded in 1282.
It is one of the most popular cherry blossom viewing place by the scenery of 5-storied pagoda and cherry trees.
I visited there at 6 April 2017 and cherry blossoms were almost in full bloom.
(They are fully bloomed between the end of March and beginning of April every year.)
