Rapeseed plants put on their springtime best as the yellow flowers bloomed early at Azumayama Park in Ninomiya, Kanagawa Prefecture. Visitors enjoyed the bright yellow blossoms in the warm winter light. On clear days, the park commands a panoramic view of Mt. Fuji and Enoshima island from its summit, which is at an altitude of 136 meters and overlooks Sagami Bay. The stems of the flowers are thinner than usual, but they have abundant blooms, a park official said, adding that the recent warm weather triggered their early flowering.
