Cherry Blossoms!!!

April 27, 2011

I L.O.V.E cherry blossoms. They are so cute and girly. I love everything about them. I even love the Japanese illustrated designs, cards and food.

Last year I was lucky enough to be in Japan for Cherry Blossom festival (or Sakura Matsuri), which was amazing. Nothing we have even comes close to the thousands of old Cherry Blossom trees that the Japanese people have all over the country. To be around that kind of beauty was astonishing.

I heard recently that in Tokyo people have not been encouraged to celebrate the festival because of the recent tragedy. They say the country has to be in a time of mourning. This really made me upset. The Sakura festival is such a wonderful time of year and I think that the Japanese people should be able to bring a little light into their lives.

In honor of them and their loss, below are photos from this year and now.
