Lane 11 of Karangasem Embellished with Cherry Blossom

Lane 11 of Karangasem Embellished with Cherry BlossomJALAN Bypass Stadion known as the Line 11 in Karangasem County now looks more beautiful. Along the road is decorated with 85 Sakura plants of 6 months old. “I have asked the Forestry and Agriculture Agency, Sanitation and Landscaping Agency and the Environment Agency to grow the cherry blossom,” said the Regent of Karangasem, I Wayan Geredeg, in the mutual cleanup at the location, Friday (Jun 21).

Regent Geredeg said the Japan-Karangasem relation was formerly established in the form of sister city with the City of Kamakura and Kesenuma. Then, it was resumed with the Ehime County represented by the Japan Sakura Exchange Association (JSEA), a Cherry Blossom Lovers Group and Economic Group marked with the delivery of 300 grafted stems of cherry blossom.

Sakura flower in Japan, said Regent Geredeg, was a symbol of peace. On that account, it was expected the inspiration of peace also affected Karangasem through the representation of the cherry blossom planting. “The cherry blossoms were planted in the area of Besakih Temple and the stadium road denoting the gift from the Japan Sakura Exchange Association (JSEA),” he said.

In Karangasem, 300 grafted stems of cherry blossom had been planted. Fifty stems were planted in the UPTD Rendang, 150 stems at Mekar Nadi Farmer Group at Palak hamlet, Besakih, 125 stems at the Jungutan Farmer Group, Bebandem subdistrict, 25 stems at various locations such as the Taman Ujung, Tirta Gangga and the road section leading to the stadium. “Japanese side will monitor the growth and development of this cherry blossom planting,” added Regent Geredeg.
