  1. I have such fond memories of seeing the cherry blossoms in Japan when I was visiting family there as a child, so I definitely wouldn’t mind going back there again. Though the cherry blossoms in Seattle are pretty nice too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes! There are so many places they exist. I honestly found it hard to put this article together and really narrow it down haha. Thanks Valerie!

    1. Yes! I tried to pick places that were a little less known. But did feel I HAD to mention Japan! Tried to have a nice balance. ;p

  2. Cherry blossoms are really beautiful, actually, in 10 years it’ll be seen in the northern Philippines too, specifically in Baguio City. It’s because Japan gave some local farmers 10 cherry blossoms to plant. Some were already blooming but still small, hopefully, they’ll grow beautifully and farmers will be able to plant more ๐Ÿ™‚
