Hi Panos and camel6433.

I always enjoy going to Japan to view Sakura during the spring season. This picture was taken last year when we visited Kanto area.

This year we plan to go to northern Honshu.

Will share more picture after that.

Hi francine and Wijarn,

Glad you like this picture that I took last year.

We were in Japan again this sakura season, but the winter was "too long" and sakura season was late. We were able to see only a few trees in bloom.

I will share some pictures soon.
