“Spring is God’s way of saying, ‘One more time!’ – Robert Orben

With over 200 photos, this book will not only show you the beauty of the cherry blossoms in Kyoto but it will explain and describe the way the Japanese people enjoy this season. It will provide you with information and suggestions to discover and enjoy this most wonderful period in this amazing city that has been Japan’s capital for over 1,000 years.

With basic knowledge about the various cherry tree varieties, their characteristics and the timing of their blooming, you’ll be able to take full advantage of your visit, however short it is, and enjoy the breathtaking beauty and fragility of spring. This book will be a valuable keepsake for visitors to Kyoto and will allow you to capture the true essence of spring while sharing with the Japanese people the unique experience of the blooming cherry blossoms.

This eBook is full of practical information covering not only the timing but also the various locations within the city as well as around it and in adjacent cities such as Nara and Osaka, to best see and enjoy the flowers. I have also added a page with information for my fellow photographers.  

The ebook is available for immediate download after purchase. The 72-page ebook is in PDF format ( 87 MB).
