Monday was the perfect day for exploring. There was no school and the weather was great. It was sunny, warm and all blue sky. We went up north with the girls to Mt. Yaedake. The mountain is covered in 7,000 cherry blossom trees. Mt. Yaedake has the first blooming cherry blossoms in all of Japan. It was just beautiful!! You drive up the mountain, taking time to stop along the road and admire the trees. The trees were not fully in bloom yet, but it was so amazing.
