Cherry blossom trees surround many schools in Japan, and both my schools have an abundance. Opening ceremonies for the new school year are in early April, and coincide with the blooming of the trees.
This is Omuta Kita (North Omuta) High School, where I spend Monday, Tuesday and Friday.
Yamato (which literally translates as mountain gates) high school, where I teach on Wednesday and Thursday.
We have really been enjoying the cherry blossom season, and I will be sad to see it end!
