Spring Sakura

Here are a few pictures of the spring Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) that were blooming in and around town a week or two ago.

The first two were taken in Furano on my way home one Sunday, along with one that was posted on flicker within the last week.

I like Sakura season in Japan, but it’s very short and we don’t have a lot of Sakura in town. Apparently they aren’t good for potato crops.
