Cherry Blossoms at Ohio University

Ohio University received its Cherry Trees as a gift from Chubu University, a longtime partner university located in Kasugai, Japan. The trees were first planted in 1979 under the direction of Ohio University President Charles Ping and Chubu University President Kazuo Yamada.

Each spring, the university community enjoys the blooming of these magnificent trees. We hope you will check our website regularly for updated photos of the trees, which will also be lit up in the evening hours when they are in full bloom.

The tree lighting for 2019 will  begin on Saturday, April 6
