Sakura Sneak Peak!

I am getting seriously behind! And this weekend is already shaping up to be extremely blog worthy! It is the weekend of Sakura (cherry blossom) Matsuris (Festivals) and I am going to be photographing and soaking up that festive atmosphere like nobody's business!

There is a festival in my town, Yaese.
At a park with this gorgeous outlook:
Instead of catching up on blogs now, though, I am going to take a minute to give you a quick glimpse of the cherry blossoms.

My friend-coworkers and I went up to Yaese Park after work today to check out the blossoms before the crowds arrive for the festival.

My crazy coworkers. :)
No crowds!
The cherry blossoms bloom earliest in Okinawa but are still pretty sparse right now.

However, there are still plenty to photograph!

I can't wait to go back tomorrow when it is full-blown party time! I love Okinawan festival music! And the food!! Droooool!
Festive lanterns light the way after dusk.
My battery died right before dusk. Oops!

One more sakura photo:


  1. Oh my gosh, is it hanami time already???
