Ota Sakura Festival

The annual Sakura Festival is held around April 1st each year..  This year the blossoms had just opened, a bit late due to a cold snap the week before  But the weather was nice and the event fun.  The festival is held on a long street 5 minutes on foot from my apartment.  The street is lined with 90 70-year old cherry trees.  One side of the street is almost completely filled with food vendors.
