It’s Cherry Blossom Season On Instagram

Towards the end of March and beginning for April, my longing for Japan becomes almost unbearable. It’s Cherry Blossom Season – one of the most popular times to visit Japan – and my Instagram stream is full of images of cherry-trees in full bloom.

While seeing the cherry blossoms is still quite high on my bucket-list, I have never made it to Japan in early spring. So, I have to live vicariously through those beautiful pictures people share on Instagram. To share my longing, I decided to collect some of my favourites in this post:

While I will keep enjoying those pictures of Cherry Blossom Season on Instagram, I might try to hunt down some cherry and apple trees here in Switzerland. If I am successful, I will tell you all about the best Hanami spots outside Zurich!
