Hanami 2012

Although I have lived in Japan for over 7 years now, I haven't been fortunate enough to see the cherry blossoms in 6 years because we have been home for Abe's off season around that time.

Luckily Abe's schedule (and mine) have allowed us the opportunity to be here to see the magical blossoms for ourselves. This year helped me realize why this time of year is so fascinating for Japanese (and the thousands of tourists that flock here this time if year). Suffice to say I love spring in Japan.
