Cherry Blossoms in Japan

Cherry Blossoms in Japan

OHanami (お花見) - Cherry Blossom Viewing
The sky is a beautiful backdrop for these breathtaking Sakura trees.

The cherry blossoms bloom for no more than two weeks, so traditionally the blossoms represent the transient nature of life.

This is the second year that we have walked the Cherry Blossom trek along the river in Miyagi Prefecture. There are about 1000 trees. We started in Ogawara and walked to Funeoka. It took us an hour to leisurely walk the 2.5 kilometers.

Those blossoms are gorgeous! The light off-white clouds offer the perfect 'canvas' for the pink blossoms to show off so well...
