Tohoku Region

The Tohoku Region consists of six prefectures in the north eastern part of Japan's largest island Honshu. This region is well known for its rice, hot springs, lakes and mountains.

My next few posts will be about different places in this region.. because that's where I'm heading for vacation today!

I'm really looking forward to a nice holiday with just The Husband.

We'd also be going to the Mount Fuji region and then dropping by Tokyo for a few days to see an old friend and do some shopping.

And hopefully, we'd get to see blooming sakura trees.

These pics were taken in Beijing and not Japan... 
My friends living there were surprised that they were taken in Beijing. 
There is this park with a nice collection of sakura trees right in Beijing city.
