Cherry trees are really hard to id.
Especially from a general photo.
It is a very specialist subject needing an expert in Prunus.
It involves date of flowering, number of petals, colour of petals, size of flowers, leaf shape, leaf glands etc etc.

eg. In a town all the same named cherries will be flowering together at the same time.
Some flowers open very early eg Prunus subhirtella 'autumnalis'...while other flower much later.

It is a real mine field for amateurs.


It MIGHT be Prunus Okame...but equally it might not be!
