My Pink Shibazakura Dream in Chichibu, Saitama

Hi friends! 🙂

I’m so inspired to blog, create, and share these days and here I am once again taking full advantage of this unusual state of mine. Haha! Is this the effect of facebook detox?!

(FYI, I have deactivated my personal FB and I still have no plans to go back yet haha)..

Let me share these photographs I took when I went on a journey to Chichibu during the end of April. It was certainly a dream come true for a flower enthusiast like me! 🙂 If you plan to go to Japan (Kanto region), a trip to Saitama prefecture is highly recommended! I originally wanted to go to Mt. Fuji to see the Shibazakura (pink moss) but I didn’t want to risk and get disappointed by the disappearing Fuji-san. Also, I’ve been so interested in exploring Saitama! So many trees, parks, and wonders of nature here!

I didn’t expect that I would be welcomed by cherry blossoms that day.

The sakura flowers had already fallen in our area during the same time.. so imagine my surprise! I was so delighted!

Dreamy Shibazakura Heaven at Chichibu, Saitama

Hello everybody!

Here are some photos from last weekend.

Enjoy! ^^

Last Saturday, I had a solo trip to Chichibu, Saitama. Ever since I saw photos of Shibazakura (Pink Moss) in the internet, I’ve always wanted to visit such pink heaven! Unfortunately, for the past 4/5 years here in Japan, I wasn’t able to do so (reason = TIME ;_;).

Though I came quite early (the park just opened last April 15/16, I think), seeing the abundance of the pretty shibazakura .. I was so stunned! The place doesn’t even look like real! *_*

Anyway, before I go and show all the photos, here are some ~artsy~ photos I took during my “journey”, haha!

Went to Omiya station to ride the Takasaki Line (local) for Kumagaya. From Kumagaya, I took the Chichibu line.. and unexpectedly, I got to ride a pretty limited express train!

Bonus: There weren’t soooo many people!
