We tried to see Nagoya Castle 2 weeks ago, but got there just as it closed. Last weekend, we were to busy to go. We finally got a chance this Saturday. I was so glad that we were delayed. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom this weekend, and the castle grounds looked absolutely beautiful.

That is all for now! My next post will be about food!
