Rule #2 of going to the Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival)

Don’t take the cherry blossoms from the tree and then sprinkle them around just for your photo where the petals probably won’t end up showing up anyway. There were a lot of people you could see who took big chunks of cherry blossoms to put in their hair. The more common thing was kids and adults who would shake the branches to make the petals fall out of the tree as they were waiting for their friend to take a shot.

More to come.
