Sakura is in full bloom!

Hi everyone!

Last time I wrote sakura (cherry blossoms) had just started blooming, It is now in full bloom!

Look! This is the photo I took from my balcony. It is fortunate that some sakura trees have been planted right in front of my place.

In this season sakura trees lining the streets make flower tunnels.  The photo below was taken in my neighborhood. Beautiful, isn't it?


We cannot enjoy this scenery long, though. Weather forecast says it will rain Friday in Tokyo region and make flowers fall. After that the trees will be covered with green young leaves. 

If you are planning to have a cherry-viewing party, be quick! You don't have to go very far. Luckily, sakura is everywhere in Japan.
