You ask me why did I go 550 km up almost to Hokkaido?
I’ll try to explain: we arrived in early May, which is the time of the Sakura (cherry trees) blossoming. You have to track the right time because the season of blossoming moves fast across the country (they even have a real-time map to do that). We have already missed it in Tokyo, but we still had a chance catch it there, in Aomori.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if we should even bother to go so far and I wasn’t expecting much. But I can say now, – it was like a fairy-tale in real life!!
One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life! Just take a look at the pictures! And then, imagine actually being there. (I am not a professional photographer, so you don’t have to worry that the pics are better than the reality. Believe me, it is exactly the opposite!)
