Live vicariously through these posts.

From mid-March to late May, Japan gets a pink shower of soft, delicate flowers—and throngs after throngs of tourists. And while spring has yet to go into full bloom, trees in parts of Tokyo, Kyoto, Ehime, Niigita and Osaka have started raining blossoms, and people have—well, started posting.

Now because we know you hate missing out as much as we do, here’s how Japan’s been at the first blush of spring.
