Sakura Time Approaching

It's getting closer and closer to the cherry blossom season in Japan. Not forgetting about last weeks horrific tsunami and constant reminder of the thousands of people who have lost their lives, it is up to us to keep reminding the world how beautiful a country Japan is and how dignified and elegant the Japanese people are. Here are a few photo's of what to expect in the coming weeks. The cherry trees (sakura) will start to bloom in the south of Japan working their way up to the north - hopefully adding some hope and happiness to those left without homes.


  1. Hi Darina-

    We're gearing up for Our Hanami(Cherry blossom viewing) Party as well. This year one of my co-workers is brewing up three batches of beer just for the party.
    Spring is in the air here in Shikoku, and I ate lunch outside last weekend overlooking the Naruto straight in Tokushima. This is the point where the Pacific meets the Seto inland sea, and the view was spectacular.

  2. I'm glad to see things are picking up for Japan and people are getting ready to enjoy the season. I saw Naruto (Tokushima) last year when leading our small group tour Lost in Japan: http://www.uniquejapantours.com/small-group-tours/lost-in-japan
    Quite powerful indeed.....certainly wouldn't like to fall overboard!!
