Japan in Spring - photos
(Sat 2 Mar 2002 to Sat 27 Apr 2002, 42 photos)

Spring is the season for plum and cherry blossoms in Japan. For plums, I went to Kairakuen in Mito, one of Japan's three most famous gardens. The cherry blossoms of Miyajima, Matsuyama castle and Arashiyama were wonderful. The Takayama Spring Festival was spectacular.
