Code



This is a QR Code. It is on this Somei Yoshino Cherry Tree sign. This code can be read by most cellphones in Japan. When you read this code, it leads to a website about this type of cherry tree!

I've seen these codes around the city a couple of times. It's a great way to learn about things and places around the city through your cellphone.

This is really something new and interesting. Here I have seen code like these only on rail tickets!

That's fascinating - I've read articles about these codes but I've never seen one before. It could be very useful.

That's impressive. A wonderful idea indeed, to connect history and future into an educational present. Please have a wonderful Sunday.

Very interesting! Like T.Becque, «Louis» hasn't seen this before.

I was trying to think where I saw this code here recently, and then remembered it was on a packet of ham. Perhaps I should try reading it with my mobile phone!
