San Jose Blossoms

Lovely Sunday in Japantown

If you want to get a dose of cherry blossoms, you don’t need to look very far. Not only is San Jose sprinkled with cherry blossom trees in general but you can find plenty lining the streets of Japantown. Or if you feel like more of a garden setting, head on down to the Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelly Park or to Hakone Gardens in Saratoga. These awesome spring days are great for heading out and about.
