After tromping around the Tottori Sand Dunes (Sankyuu) I headed back to the main Tottori train station, but realized I had more time to spend before last train. Since it was sakura season (Japan Cherry Blossoms) I checked via mobile wifi that the Tottori Fukuro River (Fukurogawa /袋川) sakura were in full bloom. I’m so glad I did. It was the best sakura I’d gotten to see all season! For previous sakura talks check out the “sakura” tag on Universal-Doll.
Japan Cherry Blossoms in full bloom in Tottori
Local children had drawn these cute rain gauges made out of PET bottles. Of course a lot are comic related like the Astroman and Nameko Saibai one.
Litter signs in Japan can get really cute looking.
So amazing right? I don’t think I edited any of these pictures other than cropping and resizing. No need to with all the lovely pinks
Corporate Salaryman Hanami
Business Hanami (Japan Cherry Blossom viewing) go full-out! I was happy to walk along when the lowly grunts on the corporate ladder were forced to wake up very early that day to secure a prime spot and secure all the goods. If you’ll notice there’s bottles of sake and mixers set up, along with giant trays of sushi and presents for the gifts.
All the drinks and mixers getting set up.
Such a big feast! I can’t wait to enjoy Japan Cherry Blossom again this year. Just looking at these photos gets me excited. Have you ever seen them?
