It's sakura season in Japan. We bought this sakura mochi from Sun Moulin @ Isetan. Filled with red bean paste, it's both salty and sweet. But I can't really taste any sakura (how does sakura taste anyway?)
Our friend D & L went last month and caught the full bloom in Tokyo *envious*. Went to their place today and saw their photos, it's very nice! We never caught the full sakura bloom where pink fills the trees and everywhere looks like a dreamland.
The bloom we caught in 2008 Hokkaido was slightly different, the sakura was of a different variety, it was much bigger. And the trees we saw at a secluded park was shorter.
Here are some pictures to recapture our sakura moments.
