Here is this year's sakura zensen (cherry blossom front). If you'd like to see or read more, click here. Sakura, or cherry blossoms as they're known in the United States, are a big deal here in Japan. The Japanese gave the cherry tree to the U.S. in 1912. When we lived here from 2008-2010 I found sakura Kit Kats and am hoping they're released again. Here is my post about sakura from 2009...the girls are so little and have changed so much! On a side note, I changed the header of the blog today. I used a picture I took in Kamakura from this post.
Writer, cookier, wife and stay at home mom. The Navy has moved us (in the following order) to Annapolis, Maryland; Charleston, South Carolina; Balston Spa, New York; Groton, Connecticut; Kings Bay, Georgia; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; back to Groton, Connecticut; back to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Yokosuka, Japan, Dam Neck, VA; back to Pearl Harbor; Newport, RI; Monterey, CA and now back to Japan. We'll see where else it takes us, but for now I'm just going with the flow. I enjoy every minute of it and am a sponge when moving to new places.
