By Paul Crouse / Kyoto Photo Shoots & Tours
The cherry blossoms are in full bloom right now here in Kyoto, which about a week earlier than average.
I was out on a tour today and the trees are fully in bloom at every location I visited, as well as everywhere I looked out the window as we traveled around town. The cherry blossoms are in the best condition I have seen for years. It doesn't get any better than this.
The weather forecast of the next week is for warm days and cool nights. Hopefully the trees will continue to stay in bloom for a while.
Here are some photos I took today:
