Spring is one of the best times to visit Japan because it’s the cherry blossom season! Sure it may be crowded with lots of locals and tourists but it was definitely worth braving the crowds for. I visited a number of spots for Hanami and was incredibly blessed to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom 🙂

Check out the snapshots from my trip and hopefully you’ll be inspired to head to Japan next year to experience them for yourself!

Every year, friends and family gather at the park for a picnic under the cherry blossom trees. There is a saying in Japanese, 一期一会 (ichi go ichi e). One time, one meeting. Treasure every meeting for it will never be the same. ー Mikhail ミカイル #一期一会#日本の旅行 #hhwt
