I have wanted to go back to Japan for years … but it’s not really a budget weekend away – so when I got my lump sum from UK Pension Services – I saw my chance .
So off I went .. Japan was on top of my do-it note … and second was to visit Japan during the during the cherry blossom . Japan has has a wide variety of cherry blossoms (Sakura); well over 200 cultivars can be found there.
Didn’t arrive to Tokyo until 8th of April and I were so nervous for missing the cherry blossoms, arrived just after midnight from Hong Kong and Tokyo offered a light rain. As the chauffeur drove through the night I could see the blossoms. My heart was literally singing there in the back of car.
The massive blooming I missed, but for 15 days I meet every day the most lovely and delicate blossoms, both in rain and sunshine.
And I want to share their beauty with you …. Enjoy!
