Shibazakura Festival
Shibazakura Festival

Just wanted to thank everyone who has been following my blog, liked us on facebook, emailed me, tweeted about us, gave me restaurant recommendations to try, etc. Very excited to hear from my readers and appreciate all the support :) Gives me the motivation to keep posting!

Today, I wanted to share with you a beautiful Shibazakura Festival that is going on in Yamanashi-prefecture until May 27th. (It was supposed to end this weekend but it got extended due to the late blooming of the flowers). Unfortunately it was overcast on the day we went… so we couldn’t see Mt. Fuji, but if you go on a clear day, it should be an amazing view with some great photo opportunities. If you get hungry, they have some food options there but not a whole lot of selection.
