I’m so glad I brought my winter jacket to Japan because it was cold most of the time we were there. Cloudy, windy with some rain off and on. I think the clouds made for better images but the most disappointing part about it was that the cherry blossoms weren’t blooming like I thought they’d be. The tree on the left was one of the most beautiful trees we saw so I’m glad we still got to see a little sneak peak of them.

Spent a beautiful morning wondering around the Smithsonian Gardens behind the castle. Such a beautiful place with not many people around.

Pro tip: another great place to catch the cherry blossoms when they bloom.

For now, they have these amazing magnolias trees. It was like flower heaven.
