Spring in Kyoto becomes even more attractive with many kinds of flowers. Everybody starts to speak about Ohanami (お花見, cherry blossom viewing). It is truly a nice season.
A term Ohamani usually means cherry blossom, however, I myself enjoy many other kinds of flowers during my visits to historical places.
Camellia flowers have enormous petals, and is traditionally appreciated in tea ceremonies. Some people say it's more beautiful when it has fallen on the mossy ground than while it is still on the tree.
White magnolias under the blue sky are very elegant. The pink almond flowers are so pretty that easily be confused with cherry blossoms. Visiting historical sites and viewing flowers, that's my very precious moment.
