Blossom sweethearts in Japan should hold up until one year from now to sneak through the tulips after a recreation center demolished in excess of 100,000 stems to agree to social-removing rules to help control the coronavirus.

Authorities in the city of Sakura, 50 km east of Tokyo, cut the tulip beds at "Sakura Furusato Hiroba" and dropped a yearly tulip celebration to dishearten individuals from congregating after a coronavirus crisis was pronounced a week ago.

"Numerous guests went ahead of the end of the week when the blossoms were in full sprout. It turned into a mass assembling so we had no real option except to settle on the choice to cut the blossoms," said Sakiho Kusano, a city the travel industry official.

Japan's count of coronavirus diseases remained at 11,500 on Wednesday.

Notwithstanding the nonappearance of the pink and red blossoms that normally cover the 7,000-square-meter tulip gardens during this season, the recreation center is drawing a sprinkling of guests.

"It's incredible, disastrous. My state of mind sank when I saw this," 77-year-old guest Misako Yonekubo said on Wednesday.

The slice blossoms were given to kindergartens.
