The height of the season was over in Tokyo and as I went around hunting for them, I found a few trees still in bloom in the city. I blame myself for coming so late and missing the season. But whatever I found was still so beautiful, these billowy blooms that so epitomizes Japan. I never understood their mystic till I came and saw them. Now Im really hooked. I want to return next year to see them in full bloom all over the city!
