Annually, I see friends and tourists the world over taking trips to Japan or Korea at this time of the year to catch the beautiful cherry trees in bloom. This happens during the spring season which occurs beginning April.


Well, what if I told you that you didn’t need to book a plane ticket to see the cherry blossoms and that you’d only need to drive down to Dasmariñas instead. These Balayong trees bearing sakura-like flowers can be found beside the building of De La Salle University Medical Center in Dasmariñas, Cavite.


You can visit De La Salle University Medical Center-Medical Arts Center as long as you bring an ID with you.

Where else can you see these “cherry blossom trees”?

In 2017, about P250-million was spent for the Balayong nature park project in Puerto Princesa aiming to boost the tourism of the province. Cherry trees endemic to Palawan, specifically the Cassia nodosa variety known locally as balayong, will be the centerpiece of a 7-hectare park at the heart of the city.


The first sakura park project in the Philippines was opened last 2016 in Atok, Benguet wherein over 30 cherry blossom seeds were planted and expected to bear fruit by 2019.
