This year I was in America during cherry blossom season in Osaka. I missed all the hanami (picnics under the cherry trees) and I thought I would miss all the beautiful flowers in bloom but I managed to catch the tail end when I cycled around Osaka Castle the day after I got back to Japan. The sakura blossoms never disappoint me. I can't get enough of them. My favourite time of year in Japan. So perfect. I find myself smiling and I always feel uplifted. There's something magical about the power of the cherry blossoms to impress and charm the whole country year after year
