Enjoying the seasonal plum blossoms

ph-ume05

There have been many warm days this year, so plum blossoms have already begun to bloom here and there. This time, we have collected places where you can enjoy plum blossoms near the course. It would be nice to take a leisurely walk around the course, enjoying the view and having tea in between. It is still cold, so please wear warm clothes when you go out.
