Most of Japan is now awash in a glorious blanket of pink thanks to the blooming of the cherry trees.
The cherry blossom is Japan’s national flower and when they bloom, it’s not hard to see why.
The fragile flowers create a spectacular floral display that flourishes for about a week, gives another dazzling display as the petals fall and then disappears until it’s time to do it all again the following spring.
My opinion is that cherry blossom season turns Japan into the most beautiful place on earth and there are truly delightful sights to be seen just about everywhere. Of course, holding a special place in my heart are the cherry blossoms at Kangaeroo Corner, seen here just in front of the incredibly lush lawn!
