Turtle Head Isle’s 30,000 cherry trees were donated by groups of Japanese visitors who have been coming to Wuxi since the 1980s to plant the trees as a gesture of friendship. Cherry trees, with a relatively brief blooming period, are prized in both Chinese and Japanese cultures. The cherry blossom is the national flower in Japan, where viewing the spring bloom is a popular ritual called hanami.
