Meaning & History

From Japanese "cherry blossom", though it is often written さくら using the hiragana writing system. It can also come from (saku) "blossom" and (ra) "good". (Source HERE)

I took more than a hundred photos when we visited the Cherry Blossoms.

Believe me, there's no wrong angle when the views are as beautiful as these.

It's a beautiful feeling to walk underneath these blooms.

Husband and I enjoyed this view until it got dark.
