Cherry blossom season is here and that means people from around the island are flocking to popular festivals. However, it’s not always necessary to make the trip to the crowded parks of Okinawa in order to enjoy the sights. In fact there are sakura all around the island.
In today’s video I made my way to a small neighborhood park not far from Kadena Air Base (along Route 85). The read near the park is lined with beautiful sakura. Ryukyu white eyes were also enjoying the sakura before a rain storm rolled in.
Who needs a festival? Sakura are everywhere!
