The Sakura (桜) Chase Is On in Okinawa Japan !


Cherry Blossom or, Sakura (桜) Season progresses from north to south in Okinawa.

Along with all the travelers clicking cameras, come the Mejiro.

That's another name for the bird known as Japanese White Eye.

There aren't enough hours in the day or, days in the week for me to catch all the festivals.



Did you know, Cherry Blossom Viewing is a national pastime throughout Japan ?

Some nature lovers chase the sakura from the Ryukyu Islands, all the way through Hokkaido !

Japan-Australia,
We'll do our best to document as many blossoms as possible. Things are already looking much better than what we had last year. Hope you get a bunch of Sakura up in Gifu, too.I'm looking forward to your photos of them !
