THE MONEY DOLLARS COINS
Plants In southern Japan are many broad-leaved evergreens, such as chinquapins and evergreen oaks. As one moves north, beeches and nonevergreen oaks become common. Forests in Hokkaido in the northern part of the country often consist of conifers like the Yeddo spruce and Sakhalin fir. Because there are four distinct seasons in Japan, different types of flowers bloom during the year. Plum blossoms appear in early spring, cherry blossoms in mid-spring, hydrangeas during the rainy season in early summer, morning glories during mid-summer, and chrysanthemums in the fall.
