Meanwhile back in Tokyo, I was able to locate more cherry blossoms. I never understood why it was such a big deal until I came and saw it in person. They are a big deal. I would have loved to come earlier in the season. I intend to come next year at the height of the cherry blossom season because it is truly a big deal. During the height of the season picnics are being held in parks and people just meander around places where the blossoms are and enjoy the beautiful sight.
