Cherry blossom season has come swiftly, and actually caught me a little off-guard! However, I’m off to a good start, and thought I would share some photos with you of my adventures so far :)
Good morning! It’s Golden Week, a series of Japanese holidays, and I just got back yesterday from a trip to see the blue flowers and tulips at Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki. It’s my second time to the park; the first time was in September 2013, and different kinds of flowers were blooming, which you can see here.
My brother had sent me a picture of these flower-covered hills back in December of last year, with a description saying they originated in California (where I’m from). It seems to be true. Anyway, since he’s never been there, it was fun to actually go see it and then report back :)
The Meguro River is the #1 cherry blossom viewing spot in Tokyo. As you might expect, it’s really crowded, but it’s popular for a reason.
