Better Than Cherry Blossom Season
At first glance, I thought I’d climbed that big hill to Okurayama Park for nothing. Hey, what’s with the bare branches? Where’s the fluffy pink and white goodness? It’s supposed to be plum blossom season! But then I got closer, and there were some trees starting to bloom.
In fact, once I really looked, they were beautiful.
These trees are at Okurayama Park near Yokohama, a 5 minute walk from Okurayama Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line. If you’d like to visit Okurayama Park the next time you’re in Tokyo, a map is on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had. For more beautiful plum blossom photos, check out Tokyobling’s Blog!
