Hanami; pt 2

April 12, 2008

I’d rather forgotten there was supposed to be a part two. But here it is. These pictures are from the town of Matsubase, south of Kumamoto, last Sunday as we basked in temperatures in the low 20s and the blossoms were out in full.

Round the bend

We spotted a few cherry trees on a hill nearby, and headed for it. A bendy road curved up the hill, lined all the way by pink blossoms, to a park at the top. Past a baseball ground, we found a playground that was surrounded by sakura.

So we sat on the bank for a while, watching the kids flitting from climbing frame to slide, and watching the bees flitting from flower to flower.
