Fukuoka // An unexpected surprise - cherry blossoms
One of the highlights of our trip was definitely cherry blossoms. When we booked our trip, we gave up any chance of seeing cherry blossoms as they usually bloom late March in this part of Japan. I saw a few cherry blossoms trees outside our apartment and felt lucky to have seen them. Imagine my surprise when we made a trip to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park (海の中道海浜公園) on the first day and were greeted by an assembly of cherry blossoms . Best of all, there were hardly any crowds on we have all these cherry blossoms to ourselves.
