A short 20 minute drive from Kamesei Ryokan / Togura-Kamiyamada Onsen, Mori "Apricot Village" is at its peak for the apricot blossoms.
On the 8th, I again took a drive over to check out the flowers,
The blossoms were even more open,
The spring sky was even more blue,
The snow-capped Northern Alps in the distance were even more visible,
In other words, it was perfect!
The timing of the flowers and the weather are always hard to predict, but this week promises to be a great one for flower-viewing at Mori.
