Cherry Blossoms - Japan 2019 (Nagoya)
My trip to Japan (with brief stops in Tokyo on either side of a few days down in Nagoya) coincided with the Cherry Blossom Trees being in bloom. This was the second time I've visited Japan during the Cherry Blossom bloom with the first one being back in 2017. Here's a post showing the trees then. I loved the experience so much that I decided to try to find a flowering Cherry Tree to add to our own backyard. I ended up with this Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Tree.
The trees this time weren't as full as I think we came a little bit later (late March/early April) this time. You can kind of see that in the photo above. It has already bloomed and has lost some of the flowers. In the photo below, you can clearly see the blooms had mostly fallen off already.
Doesn't mean it wasn't as beautiful. It was and these photos don't do the trees justice.
This marks the third straight year for Cherry Trees with 2018 being a visit to DC for those along the Tidal Basin.
