This year we celebrated Sakurahana in Japan. This is also known as the spring festival. Since I was twelve years old and watching Card Captor Sakura, I have always wanted to visit Japan to see the cherry blossoms. Last year, we saw some by chance, but were a little early for the spring festival.
This year for a belated honeymoon, we travelled to Osaka during Japan’s spring festival. It is often regarded as the best time to visit Japan, and for good reason.
When I see cherry blossoms, I feel calm and relaxed. I made a nice video of them falling down slowly in Nara Park. It made me feel like I was in a Zhang Yimou movie. When I feel anxious I watch it back.
Many people have picnics by the lake in Osaka park and by Osaka castle. We took a great deal of photos of this. I hope you enjoy the pictures from this year’s Sakurahana in Osaka and Kyoto Japan!
