Mt Yaedake Cherry Blossoms, Okinawa 2016

My second trip to see the cherry blossoms was a bit more successful. For this trip I drove to Mt. Yaedake north of Nago, Okinawa. The first thing I saw once I parked was this stunning view.

This bell is a prayer bell I believe. I really wish I had picked up more Japanese over the years. The bell had a really lovely ring to it.

The blossoms were gorgeous. I even managed to catch a little wildlife.

If you ever have the opportunity to see the cherry blossoms in Japan I highly recommend it.
