Cherry Blossoms

So the Sakura are in full bloom. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is something to see firsthand. It's beautiful and a great time to be in Japan.

Everyone in the entire country heads out to 'view' the Sakura (it's called Hanami which translates to 'looking at the flowers'). The viewing is more of a block party where everyone gets out their picnic mats and beer and drinks it up with friends and family.
