Spring Time! Cherry Blossoms & Warm Sunny Days

Finally, Spring time is upon us. Yippee!

I get a burst of fresh energy when spring comes. I think everyone does. The green trees and grass is a very welcome sight. In Japan we’re lucky to be able to enjoy the colorful trees when they blossom in March and April.

When I first came to Japan, I thought that all the colorful pink trees were Cherry trees. But I have learnt that these beautiful blossoms appear on several different kinds of fruit trees. There are apple, plum, apricot, cherry, and possibly some other trees I’m not yet aware of.

What are your favorite things to do in spring? Do you go to view the cherry blossoms and other trees in the park? In Fukushima, there are a couple of popular flower viewing places I know of. Hanamiyama is probably the most popular, but equally as crowded.

I hope you enjoy Spring. It is my second favorite season. Summer is my #1 favorite. I love being hot and wearing just shorts and a t-shirt.
