Thank you for submitting your hanami pictures!

Hanami season, coming as it does on the cusp of spring and winter, is known for its highly changeable weather. This year featured a fair amount of wind, rain, and some cold weather on the weekends. But we were glad to see that the grim weather didn’t keep you from taking out your cameras and catching some shots of the cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Here is our compilation of the shots that you sent in, as well as our picks from some of the best shots we saw on Instagram this season. Thanks for sending in your pictures, and we’ll look forward to seeing you next year!
