The sakura matsuri (cherry blossom festival) in Joyo

Like every year around this time the cherry trees start to bloom for about two weeks in whole Japan and everywhere in the land festivals are held to celebrate this wonderful event.People are often enjoying the beauty of this view under the trees while eating, drinking and having fun. The village of Joyo has the luck to hold a great amount of cherry trees besides its shrines near the “Firefly and Stonebridge Hall”, so it was decided to give Joyo’s guests the chance to get more than just this astonishing sight. A small market has been erected in front of the Hall where people could buy different tasteful foods and experience the offerings of this place.

And although the weekend started with a lot of clouds and cold weather it changed totally to a blue heaven and unexpected high temperatures. This turned the days into a magnificent and relaxing happening for all participants.
