Cherry Blossom Season

February 10, 2006

Last week we took a day trip to the northern part of the island to catch a glimpse of the cherry blossoms. We were there a week after their peak, but they were still stunning. Okinawa cherry blossoms are a darker pink than those on mainland Japan and they bloom much earlier due to the warmer climate. We also hiked around the ruins of the oldest castle on Okinawa. Nakajin Castle, built in the13th century, has very impressive stone walls and beautiful ocean views.
