These were from my Hokkaido trip. Sorry, I can't get any closeups as that was the max my camera can be zoomed. Need the id for the pink and white flowers. The area grows these few types of fruit trees: cherry, peach, plum, and pear.

Prunus for sure. Are the pink and white two separate plants? If not ,the white could be the root stock of the grafted pink variety flowering.

Took the photos at end of May this year. Both are separate plants.

I tried searching the net. I can only come up with this:

1) Pink blossom = Cherry
2) White blossom = Plum

I agree with Thedecoguy. Both pink and white are cherries. If the white is not the rootstock it could be a sucker from the rootstock which has grown quite large nearby and looks like a separate plant.
