Cherry Blossoms!!!

Nara

One of our favorite days involved a long bike ride through neighborhoods among the cherry blossoms.

We could not have come to Japan at a better time. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom everywhere we go! The Japanese have a tradition called hanami, where friends and families celebrate the beauty of sakura (cherry blossoms) by gathering under the trees for food, drink and conversation.
