Every year San Francisco’s Japantown celebrates spring with a cherry blossom festival. This year marks the festival’s 42nd year and it takes place over two weekends in April: the 11 and 12th (which just passed) and the 18 and 19th (the big finale). I’m headed into San Francisco on the 19th to visit with my cousin Ly, go for sushi and then to see the festival’s big parade.
I can’t wait.
If you don’t get a chance to go yourself, stay tuned … I’m sure I’ll have plenty of pictures to post right afterwards and it’ll be like you were there, too.
