My friend asked me, “what will you miss most about Japan?” And I answered truthfully, “the flowers”
2. Go to Western Japan for the first bloom of Cherry Blossom! What a perfect timing that I’ll be touring around Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe this coming spring break just in time for the opening of these pink buds. View blooming forecast here.
3. Strawberry picking. Cherry blossoms and strawberries what a combination for this blushing season. Hope I’m able to do it. If all else fails, strawberries sold in your usual Japanese supermarket is most delicious by this time.
6. Awaji is known to be the “flower island” of Japan. Just look at this photo and it will lure you to visit! I’m dying to go, let’s fast forward to spring please!
