Cherry Blossoms of Japan

A few days ago, I posted this photo on Instagram for “throw back Thursday” with the caption: Remembering our incredible trip to Japan 4 years and all the gorgeous blooms!

Today’s weather is just absolutely perfect- there’s a slight breeze in the air, the temperature is hovering around 70 degrees, and the cherry trees in our neighborhood are in full bloom.  In honor of this beautiful Spring day and my love of cherry blossoms, I gathered a collection of some of my favorite pictures from our trip to Japan.  Enjoy!

The next few pictures are from the garden at Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto.  This space was filled with what seemed like hundreds of weeping cherry blossoms suspended from bamboo canopies.  I could have stayed in this spot for hours.
