Here are a few pictures of the spring Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) that were blooming in and around town a week or two ago.
The first two were taken in Furano on my way home one Sunday, along with one that was posted on flicker within the last week.
This one was taken overlooking a part of town.
This one is near our lake.
I like Sakura season in Japan, but it’s very short and we don’t have a lot of Sakura in town. Apparently they aren’t good for potato crops.
