Gardeners in Komagome started selling these cherry trees sometime between the end of the Edo Period and the early Meiji Period.
The trees came to be called Somei-Yoshino, with Somei?the name of one of Komagome’s districts?used as a prefix to differentiate them from the wild cherry trees of Nara’s Mount Yoshino.
