Cherry blossoms in Kyoto


Kyoto Cherry Blossoms

While we were in Kyoto for the day, we found a quiet spot in Maruyama Park, away from the crowds for some O-Hanami (Cherry blossom viewing). We went to a conbini (convenience store) on our way there and bought a picnic mat and other essentials, and relaxed for a good hour under the blossoms. Sorry in advance for the sakura spam below. I have many MANY more photos of cherry blossoms but managed to limit the post to the below:

Griff love's this cat character at the moment.

This guy was making some sort of delicious custard filled parfait fish shaped pastry

There were lots of food stalls at Maruyama Park for the Hanami

  1. oh my... those fish pastries are my favorite!! I get them every time I see them. They make some that look like two pancakes with filling in the middle, but they're just not the same!
