Cherry Blossom Viewing in Okinawa

The cherry trees are blossoming in Okinawa. Soft pink petals dot the mountainsides of northern Okinawa, and line the roads up Mt. Yaedake. As in mainland Japan, hanami (flower viewing) is extremely popular during their brief bloom.

On weekends things can get a little busy, and it may seem like half the island is trying to snap pictures of the flowers. Probably best to go up on a weekday, but be quick or you’ll find the petals have already cascaded to the ground.

A big thank you to Yuki for modeling, and allowing me to get some beautiful hanami shots to add to my portfolio.
