Embrace Spring With Pictures Of Japan’s Cherry Blossoms


gnta/Instagram

About a month before sakura season in Japan, the pink flowers started to bloom in a small town about three hours from Tokyo. Kawazu, located in Izu Peninsula, is home a to unique variety of sakura that blooms in the beginning of February. The cherry blossoms, called Kawazuzakura, last for about a month, compared to the usual sakura that blooms and wilts within one to two weeks.

Je vous souhaite un merveilleux weekend avec un souvenir du Japon, les sakura de Kawazu dont je vous parlais un peu plus tôt cette semaine sur le blog (lien dans ma bio). Les cerisiers ont aussi commencé à fleurir à Paris, un vrai régal pour les yeux ! On a d’ailleurs shooté hier sous les cerisiers avec @matoushisleblog et j’ai hâte de vous montrer le résultat ???????? I wish you a wonderful and magic weekend with a memory of Japan, the Cherry blossoms from Kawazu. I posted a full serie of pictures in this lovely city of Shizuoka a few days ago on the blog (link in bio), and I am absolutely delighted that the cherry trees are starting to blossom here in Paris too. We already did a few pictures under the sakura with @matoushisleblog yesterday and I cannot wait to show you the result !

Tied to the Buddhist themes of mortality, mindfulness and living in the present, Japanese cherry blossoms are a timeless metaphor for human existence. Blooming season is powerful, glorious and intoxicating, but tragically short-lived — a visual reminder that our lives, too, are fleeting. #sakura #japan #japansakura

Kawazu is a beautiful place to see sakura and it’s only a 2 hr and 40 minute train ride from Tokyo ?
