Hanami 2012 - Cherry Blossom TimeSunday, September 23, 2012
Spring has been kind and the blossoms are ready a whole two weeks earlier than usual. This year we missed the initial flushes of new pink blossoms, but they were just as nice.
As we left we saw a memorial of paper cranes left by other visitors. It is nice to see all 48 cherry blossoms still standing in remembrance of this former POW site.
