Ebigawa Cherry Blossoms

Most people don’t know about the cherry blossoms in Funabashi. If you’re looking for a place to see cherry blossoms that isn’t so crowded, Funabashi is your place. The first time I went there, I was so surprised by the hundreds of cherry blossom trees along the river. It’s beautiful during the day and as you can see in the picture, it’s very beautiful at night too.


Chidorigafuchi Hanami 千鳥ヶ淵 花見

Yesterday Dave and I headed to Yasukuni Shrine to see the cherry blossoms.

Across the street from Yasukuni Shrine, I’d always seen lines of people waiting to see the cherry blossoms at Chidorigafuchi, but I’d never actually walked through the area myself.

Well yesterday, after fourteen and a half years in Japan, I finally did it.

Here is a selfie!
