Spring in Kyoto: An Abundance of Blooms

Written on April 3, 2013

It seems like a cliche to portray Kyoto in spring as a city of cherry blossoms and a profusion of flowering trees and plants.

Cliche or not, the truth is that Japan comes alive when the cherry trees bloom, and some kind of revitalizing energy is transmitted into the Japan psyche when the cherry trees flower.

Stunningly beautiful scenes become even more so when Kyoto is in full bloom.

    En France nous avons beaucoup d’aigrettes. Elles sont toute blanches. Là je pense à une grue mais je ne suis pas sûre. Sorry but my English is so poor….

    Please assure Mimiblue that her French is as beautiful as your photos. Indeed I love the choice of colors, the blossoms juxtaposed agains the orange gates.
    Would you be able to confirm if the photo above that is of a Chinese Magnolia tree? That has always been among my favorite; so beautiful. I simply want to be certain I have the name correct.

    Thank you for your wonderful, weekly blog.
