Japan has China, not Korean, to thank for its Cherry Blossoms.
The Cherry Blossoms is native to the Himalayas, a Chinese official said recently, despite te flower’s long association with the Land of Rising Sun.
According to the same official, there are ample ancient literature in China indicate clearly that Cherry trees were exported to Japan from China during Tang Dynasty. And definitely, Cherry Blossoms are not from Korea as many Koreans also claim.
