The plum blossom has started to bloom these last few weeks, most of it isnt even in full bloom yet…but I did manage to get a few nice pictures from Osaka Castle park, Expo 70 Park and Kitano Tenmangu Shrine Kyoto.
Everyone loves cherry blossom (sakura), but what about plum blossom (ume)?! I love seeing plum blossom as its a sure sign of spring beginning and better weather ahead!
In Osaka you can see lots of plum blossom in Osaka Castle Park. We visited a few weeks ago (11th Feb) and a few early blooming species had started to blossom.
