Cherry Blossom (桜) Season in Okinawa (Photo Essay) Plan Ahead

Cherryblossom Season in Okinawa, Japan begins in January.

Cherry Blossom (桜 Sakura) Festivals take place all over the island through February. 

In order to present photos of some different locations, other than the usual tourist traps for cherry blossom viewing, RyukyuRu and I are planning ahead, starting, right now.

Off the beaten path is where we plan on going

Anyone can shoot photos of flowers in the city.

Up in the mountains, someplaces, it's pretty but, it can get pretty crowded, too.

 Instead of locations where they have stairs to climb....

We'll look for places where you can meet some wildlife.

There won't be any need to worry about people or tour busses bumping into you.

The plan is to search for these locations now.

 When the Cherry Blossoms start blooming we'll be able to shoot until the moon comes out.

 Wouldn't it be nice to shoot cherry blossoms until after dark without running into all the tourists coming to Okinawa, Japan during Sakura (桜) Season ?

That's the plan
