My favourite season is Spring because we simply don’t have it in Philippines.
I swear to God every time I see the beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan, can’t help but wonder why we don’t have it in Philippines. Like it’s unfair that we don’t experience this awesomeness at all.
It brings all sorts of emotions in me. I feel hopeful that the better days will come. They simply give joy instantly. No need for expensive gifts, dinner or theme parks. The sight of them is enough to simply complete my day.
This year, the first bloom was in Ueno, Tokyo. I will consider this day as one of my favourite as this is also was our first date.
This is the second time I saw the sakura in real life. What’s funny is that even Japanese consider this season as one of their most anticipated though they see it yearly. Every year, no one can really tell when will they be in full bloom but if you plan to travel, make sure you book either end of March or first week of April for a guaranteed glimpse of sakura.
Now I look forward to Fall. This will be my first time to experience Fall in Japan. I am hoping to see the beautiful colours of the tress and leaves as they change their colours.
