Hope you can read the above.

I hate the way TA reformats the posting. I had these all in neat columns which made it easy to read.

No worries, it%26#39;s readable. Thanks for the info! :-)

I managed to see Cherry Blossoms on Monday. It was very nice!

There was only 2 or 3 blossomed though.

I wasnt intended to see any of them but on our way from leaving Ghibi Museum to the train station, there were a few. Its awesome!!

Hello Fung11

Did you like the Ghibli museum?

Very warm this week. I guess lots of Sakura trees will be full blossom within this week in most part of the country.

Some trees even finished.

Hi SmooOz

If you a fan of all his cartoons, then yes it is worth a trip to have a look.

If you are not a fan, you may find this to be a bit small, and crowded, and is all japanese that you dont understand much.

Reminder that you need to pre-purchase the ticket before you get there. You cannot buy tickets onsite.

Hmmm, that%26#39;s going to be tight for our itinerary:-

- Land at KIX late on 10th April

- 11th in Hiroshima / Miyajima

- 12th in Himeji / Kyoto (might just see the end of them)

- 13th in Kanazawa (might just see them there also)

- 14th / 15th in Takayama for the Matsuri

- 16th - 18th is Tokyo / Mt Fuji / Nikko

- 19th - 21st is Kyoto / Nara / Arashiyama

What do the experts think? And where in Kyoto / Kanazawa is best to see them?

Thanks very much,


My tree is about 25% blooming now, I can see it right outside my window. My cats are enjoying ';hanami'; evry day! :-)
