As you might know, I am a
little bit of a HUGE coffee addict. Lucky for me, we have a Starbucks right in the center of the area we are staying in Japan. The other day it was so nice outside that I went for a walk and decided to give myself a special treat of an iced coffee, which I only get when I deem the weather warm enough.
When I walked into Starbucks that day (Feb 23, 2015) I was surprised to see signs indicating that a special time of year was upon us in Japan. There was a special drink menu and everything, all of Sakura season, which is the blossoming of the cherry blossoms.
