2012 GOLDEN WEEK FAMILY TRIP -overall review-

For the first time since 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami, my family and I went on a trip. After going through a tough year, we felt blessed that all of us are safe and healthy, and we could have quality time together again. Unfortunately, my youngest sister couldn’t join us because of her school stuff, though.

Throughout the holiday, the weather was quite nice. Sunny and warm or hot like in summer. We travled around Tohoku region in northern Japan and sakura season just arrived there, which allowed us to enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom :)
