What was supposed to be – Easter in Japan

Normally, I visit Japan a couple of times a year in order to visit with friends and get reacquainted with the culture.  Easter break is one of the times that I really like to visit because the weather is great, it’s generally sakura season (cherry blossoms) so the energy around the country is elevated since everyone is excited to be out having hanami (flower viewing) parties under the cherry trees.

This year was going to be an extra special trip because after years of saying they wanted me to introduce them to Japan, two of my friends from Canada and one from Australia were going to be meeting me in Osaka.  I had great plans to take them to cultural spots in Nara, Kyoto, Wakayama and Himeji.  We were going to do proper sushi and okonomiyaki.  Probably drink too much sake and sochu as well.  But, that obviously all got cancelled this year.  This is likely going to be the first year in more than fifteen when I don’t make a trip to Japan.  However, I’m sure (fingers crossed) that things will be approaching normal by Easter next year.  We’ll have to try again.

So, the photos are a bit of a stumble down memory lane from Easter trips gone by.  Some I’ve likely posted before, others are new.  Hope you enjoy them all the same.
