Anddddddddd...I am back, with a little bit of Intro :)
"Chasing Sakura Experience". That was what stated on our Japan Tour Cookbook. Since we did Autumn in South Korea and hit the most colorful time during our visit, we have no doubt to proceed with AA ticket to Japan, for Sakura viewing, or famous know as "hanami".
We are soooooo lucky to witness the "kekembangan" sakura at different places. Now, I present to all of you, the three types of cherry blossoms a.k.a sakura that we found during our trip. Major species consist of 5 petals, 20 petals and some up to 100 petals.
White blossoms (e.g. Shogetsu) - Can be found easily (90% during the trip).
Pink blossoms (e.g. Kanzan) - Quite difficult to be found (9.5% during the trip).
Yellow blossoms (e.g. Ukon) - Rare and difficult to be found (0.5% during the trip).
Trees without leaves, only flowers, amazing huh? Regardless you are a flower lover or not, I bet, you gonna fall into its appealing color.
3-step tips :
*Know the perfect time. Study the history of blooming month, week and day.
*Know the perfect spot. Search the popular places that have thousands of trees.
*Get a bento and enjoy "hanami" with locals. (Ok, nasik impit with serunding is acceptable.)
