梅のお花見 Plum Blossom Viewing


In Japan once it turns to spring during hanami (flower viewing) is a very popular activity. For most people, thinking about hanami conjures images of cherry blossom trees. Right now the cherry blossoms have yet to bloom in Kyoto Prefecture so last weekend I went to the Kyoto City Botanical Gardens to see the plum blossoms. At that time the plum blossoms were in full bloom so it was very beautiful. Compared to the cherry blossoms the plum blooms in deeper pinks and purples, along with white so it creates a really gorgeous scenery.
