Took a short trip down to the Izu peninsula to see cherry blossoms. Kawazu Sakura, a brighter pink variety of cherry blossom, blooms much earlier than the typical cherry blossom. And the nice thing is no one really knows about them, I don't think there are many in Tokyo. No crowds! It snowed quite a bit the night we were there which made driving a little hard, but exciting at the same time. It snowed through the night, but didn't last long, it was almost gone in the morning.
