At any rate, the Japanese seem to love cherry blossoms as much as I do. If you turn over a 100 yen, you'll see cherry blossoms on the back. Here, a cherry blossom is associated with love, luck, and good fortune. Not too shabby for a little flower.
So, when I read about the upcoming Cherry Blossom Festival in Nago, I roped everyone I could into going with me. (I might have borderline harassed them...) At any rate, the result was a fun (although wet and somewhat chilly) day spent way north on the island with good friends. :)
The stairs all the way up the hill. No thanks!
Parade we caught on the way out. The cherry blossom dancers were great!
My husband takes fabulous pictures. :)
