sakura = japanese cherry blossoms. these beauties are only in bloom for 2 weeks out of the year. we are SO lucky to have been surrounded by them throughout our whole week in japan! i loved how the japanese people appreciate them so much. they were all out and about touring their own country, taking photographs, and celebrating with festivals. they even make cherry blossom ice cream!
here are photos of japanese people...and me. i have always wanted to see japan. now i know i have to go back, not as a tourist but as a resident! i promised myself this. click on the photo to see the larger version.
