i can't believe i wasn't in japan this year. to experience the ume and sakura blossoms. after five years there they almost started to feel normal. almost. but not quite. the plan is to head back there next year in prime blooming season. for a nice long visit.
these photos were from a festival that we went to in april. a couple of years ago. and i just found this unpublished post. and what a nice surprise that was.
oh, japan, i miss you.
