A few weeks ago, my in-laws came to visit. It was great to catch up with family and share in some common memories and adventures. Living overseas for the past eight years has made it difficult to maintain close relationships with family so we’re always thankful when we get the opportunity.
Since this was their first trip to Japan, we wanted it to be memorable. My husband and I felt they needed to see Kyoto, the quintessential old world Japan. Not to mention it was a good excuse for us to head back! I was happy to discover that the famous the cherry blossom dance Miyako Odori would be happening while we were there, but little did we know our timing would also be perfect for the cherry blossoms. Mother Nature must have been on our side in creating a magical visit. The cherry blossoms arrived 2-3 weeks early and we happened to be in Kyoto when they reached full bloom (80% bloom).
Below are some photos during this beautiful time. So happy that spring is on the way!!
