The cold winter has gone and finally the hint of spring is in the air. The Sakura (cherry blossom) season is soon be coming.
Sakura flower and we Japanese have inseparable connection with each other. It's an announcement of spring for us, and at the same time, Sakura flower is deeply incorporated in our culture and arts.
The view of Sakura have different faces according to the location. Since there are many viewing spots in Kyoto, it will be nice to visit several places during your stay. One Sakura can be heavenly and breathtakingly beautiful, one can be in everybody's bucket list to see, and one can be timeless with its legendary history. Please try to find your favorite spot.
I also would like to recommend you to try YUMEYAKATA Kimono and enjoy cherry blossom viewing in it. We offer a variety of patterns in many different colors. For example, cherry blossom patterns alone, we have so many kinds. It is a great way to self-produce your season of spring!
