Orchards are taking precautions against the novel coronavirus, including placing antiseptic solutions on the premises and providing containers to put cherry pits in.

The orchard owner expressed his expectation, saying, “Thirty thousand people from within Hokkaido visited us last year. I hope the good weather will last and the number of visitors will be about the same as last year.”
