2011 Cherry Blossom Festival

Two weekends ago I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival at Redwing Park in Virginia Beach and was happy to see that the trees were in full bloom! In 1992 the city began a sister relationship with Miyazaki, Japan and since then delegates from each country have been visiting each other's countries to promote friendship and learn from each other. Virginia Beach has a Japanese Garden at the park and is establishing a promenade of Yoshino Cherry Trees - it's looking great! Miyazaki is in the southern part of Japan and wasn't directly affected by the recent tsunami.


  1. the powerful attraction of exoticism ...
