Sakura, Nagano

Apr 26 2002

I went up in the mountains in Nagano this weekend with Tets’s parents and grandparents. We went up to this shrine where they had some kind of ceremony for the Nagano Olympics a while back and, because it was so high up, the sakura were blooming. I missed Tokyo’s sakura this year by about a week, and was considerably disappointed. It was pretty exciting to find that they’re still going on in full force up there.
