Cherry Blossoms are everywhere here in Japan this time of the year. But where exactly are the best places to go in Japan to see cherry blossoms?
The margin in catching cherry blossoms in full bloom is quite delicate. It’s because cherry blossoms are … well … delicate.
They last only a week or two. Fragile as they are, wind and rain can end their stay abruptly.
They’re so pretty… but feeble. And their short existence even adds to their appeal.
Are you ready for more? 😀
Takato Castle Ruins Park is one of the top three places for cherry blossoms viewing. The park is located in Nagano, about 60 km south of Matsumoto.
It boasts to have 1,500 cherry trees of pinkish Kohigan variety.
Fluffs and fluffs and fluffs of cherry blossoms were blanketing me that it felt like I was in heaven.
To make the most out of your visit to Takato, you have got to see this …
The caveat is that you need to do a bit of a hike up.
You will have to cross the bridge.
See more beautiful cherry blossoms along the way.
Hike up a bit.
And you’ll be blessed with a paradisaical surprise.
Cherry blossom is very well a reminder that life is beautiful but tragically short. That life is precious and precarious at the same.
And as the old adage goes … Live life to your fullest.
