We went searching for cherry blossoms and we certainly found the very best Japan had to offer. They are breathtaking and you can see them during the day and feed carp in the nearby ponds, or at night with the beautiful lighting making them look so special.
Getting lost in the back streets of Gion is amazing, and I have never felt so safe even though I did not have a clue where I was half the time! Spotting a working Geisha walking past to an appointment is a thrill in itself. Even Japanese people stop and stare at these beautiful women.
I was lucky to stumble across the Mikado production, and actually got a seat (no photography allowed). As one of the only white people there i felt unbelievably priveledged to be there.
Gion! Go and go again.
