Sakura Season


Oh it has finally arrived...the cherry blossom season!!!

I've been waiting for it and it's finally here! Now it officially feels like spring and with the blue skies this weekend, I'm sure many people were enjoying seeing the pretty blossoms sway in the wind.

We call cherry blossoms "Sakura" here in Japan. It's a special time of year, despite the fact that it comes around every year, we get all excited and really anticipate this season. Mostly because we all want to eat and drink and be merry under the cherry blossoms, which we call "Hanami."

I'll probably be posting various cherry blossom photos in the days to come, as I assume most Japanese bloggers will be doing. But will try to mix it in with other photos so I don't sakura spam you!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

  11. You can post as many cherry blossom photos as you want, we don't see them in my area so they're welcome. These are truly lovely!

    Unfortunately I don't remember exactly where I was when I took that photo of Seoul, my records of my prints aren't that good going back almost 15 years!

    1. Thank you, Al! And I'm like you, my memory of Seoul is actually a little fuzzy, too. So I may have no idea what I'm talking about regarding the tower ;D
