Sakura Sakura 櫻花櫻花
On 8/4/2015 (Wednesday) night, my wife and I, together with 2 couple-friends, we went for a Sakura holiday in Kyoto and Osaka.
It was a mid-night MAS flight but was delayed by 3 hours. The plane took off at about 3:00 am, reaching Osaka Kansai Airport at about 10:30 am local time. ( 5 1/2 hr flight time)
We arrived at Kyoto J-hoppers hostel at about 2 pm.
We were very tired by in order to catch more time for Sakura viewing, we left immediately for Heian-jingo shrine.
It is almost towards the end season of Sakura in Kyoto/Osaka area. We were fortunate to see some good flowers.
It was a long day and we were dead tired.
