Japan - A Gallery of Cherry Blossoms and Other Attractions
Japan is an amazing country, full of wonders! A lot of us will think of Mount Fuji when we talk about Japan. It's magnificent! I like the snow covered Mt. Fuji very much. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit Japan. What's the best thing about visiting this wonderful country in the spring? The answer is it's cherry blossom season! I saw many cherry blossoms here in the U.S. but seeing the flowers where they originally came from (Japan) was such a great experience!
Bathroom Time! - A very unique bathroom
Cherry blossoms are beautiful flowers. I have seen cherry blossoms in Washington D.C. and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The cherry trees were gifts from Japan to the United States many years ago. In Japan, cherry trees are found nearly everywhere. Sometimes, you can spot some in people's courtyard.

More Cherry Blossoms - Right in Tokyo
Mickey & Minnie in Japan
Who would say "no" to Disney? Therefore, I got to visit Disneyland in Tokyo. Though it's very nice, I have to say Disney in Florida is better. Nevertheless, I had a great time; I especially enjoyed the train ride (mickey mouse train - see picture). I must say that their gift shops offer more varieties - a definite plus for tourists as they will bring some gifts home for their friends and family.
