Sakura Viewing

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009 by Rintaun | Uncategorized

Well, it’s the beginning of Spring, and in Japan that means pretty much one thing to the Japanese people: sakura. Sakura, if you aren’t aware, are Japanese flowering cherry trees, and they are generally in full bloom for a period of about two weeks in late March/early April. Unfortunately, my mom missed it all by about a week. She caught the very beginning of it, but it’s really most impressive right after the trees hit full bloom. Here’s an example from a picture I took out my window the other day!

I don’t really know what else to say about this, so instead I’ll just go ahead and link, for your viewing pleasure, to the photo gallery of the pictures I’ve taken of the sakura. Without further ado, here’s the link: http://gallery.rintaun.net/thumbnails.php?album=4

Enjoy!

Note: Right before this, I finally finished posting my mom’s emails that she sent out while she was in Japan, and I don’t want you to miss them just because I put this up, too. So check them out!
