It’s only natural to want to picnic during cherry blossom season in Japan. A week ago they were in full bloom, but today as I write this, they are nowhere to be seen. On a rare Sunday off, we went off to Okazaki castle to enjoy some homemade food I made. The cherry blossoms blowing in the wind and falling like rain with a backdrop of a castle and pink skies, feels like something out of ones imagination. However, during cherry blossom season, for a very short time, it is a painting that you can experience.
