Jumping the Gun

At a park in Yokohama last Sunday, a place renowned for its cherry blossoms. Most impressive is the cluster of trees atop a small mountain called Sakurayama (cherry blossom mountain). Alas, I've yet to master the timing crucial to seeing the flowers. The buds had barely opened that day.

There were dozens of others who had also misjudged the timing, or it was such a beautiful day that they just wanted to be outside. You can almost visualize how beautiful it would be when the sakura are in full bloom, but nothing can ever beat being able to see it for yourself.
