Shibazakura

One of the popular destinations in Japan this springtime is shibazakura (cherry lawn in English). Shibazakura is all over Japan but one of the most visited places is at Motosuko, near Mt. Fuji. I always see posters about it and when my friends planned to go on a trip, I confirmed my attendance without really knowing the details.

unmasked once again, alive 
passion rekindled 



I was thinking whether to still go with them on this particular trip since I just recover with my bout against influenza. I was feeling okay so I decided to join. Glad I did. It was a visual treat and Mt. Fuji showed up that day, though a little bit shy. 

The place was packed with people and it was very difficult to take a photo without including them. I didn't take a lot of photos, I just enjoyed the view. The trip was great. 

However, though maybe unrelated, I got knocked-out again after with an inflammation of tonsils. Yes, I was absent from work. 

Again.

    Great photos (and I am not just talking about this post)! The colors are really amazing!
