Our 1st sakura trip.
visited Ito onsen town and Izu Kogen. Sakura blossom was later than yearly average by about 1 week. We had gone to Kyoto prior to this but were disappointed as almost all sakura trees were still in budding stage. Thus, we were so glad that we made the right decision to detour back to Kanto as sakura was in full bloom in Ito and Izu Kogen. At the end of the 4km long sakura boulevard (tunnel) uphill we arrived at the Sakura-no-sato (hometown).
