20 photos to inspire you to see the cherry blossoms in Japan

I love cherry blossoms, sunsets and the sea. The two spring weeks when the cherry blossom trees turn pink are the best time of the year!

The cherry blossoms are the most beautiful things in the world and they are so symbolic. They remind us that life is fragile, but also that there’s always a chance to start over.

Seeing the cherry blossoms (sakura) in Japan was really a dream coming true. The cherry blossoms were everywhere and I got to experience them from opening buds to falling petals.

  1. This is amazing! The cherry blossoms are incredibly beautiful. I went to Japan last year, but unfortunately was a bit too early. I saw the plum blossoms, and that was very nice already.
