The Cherry Blossom Festival

The Cherry Blossom Festival(s) occur in various locations throughout the country during a period of about two weeks in Spring. This is primarily because the blossoms only bloom for this amount of time.

We enjoyed this festival the most as the beauty the blossoms create are incomparable.

For those like us who have only seen Cherry Blossoms on television or in books, it is magical the first time you witness the beauty of this flower in full bloom and congregated in large clusters.

The area closest to our town is a mountain called Gyreongsan, which we visited one year,  but fortunately Cherry blossoms bloomed in abundance in our town too, so some years we just enjoyed Buyeo’s blossoms. Seoul is a good place to go too
