Fifty cherry blossom branches will also be delivered to Da Nang on a direct flight from Japan’s Narita city on April 8, one day ahead of the first-ever cherry blossom festival in the Vietnamese city.

The two-day festival aims to tighten relations between Da Nang and Japan.

This year, Da Nang is set to build a Vietnam – Japan exchange centre and open two high-end hotels invested by Japanese entrepreneurs.

It will also launch a boat tour from Da Nang Bay through the Co Co River to Hoi An in neighbouring Quang Nam province, retracing the two countries’ old trade route.
