Night cherry blossom viewing on Shiraishi Island, #japan

Nighttime cherry blossom viewing, Shiraishi Island

San-chan will be holding his annual cherry blossom party tomorrow, April 5 (Sunday) up at Hiryu Shrine on the side of the mountain (head up towards the Bussharito stupa, then look for a bright green building--the shrine is on the hill behind that). The park surrounding the shrine is an amazing place to view the blossoms. Besides there being lots of cherry trees, there is a vantage point where you can stand above the trees and have the Seto Inland Sea in the background. Makes for amazing photos! 

Also at the park here, you can partake in night-time cherry blossom viewing any night as the park is outfitted in red lanterns. This is one part of Japan where you can do ohanami without the crowds, whether it be day or night. 

See you on Shiraishi Island!
