Spring has arrived! Riding in its wake is a stream of Cherry Blossom festivals all over Korea. These beautiful flowers are not only gorgeous but signify the beginning of Spring. They are so revered here that Starbucks has even created a seasonal beverage, mugs and other delectables to mark the occasion. The festivals themselves seem more like open air markets. Street food, various wares and some small rides for kids make the bones of the festival held here in Busan. Mostly it seems a nice excuse to go out and enjoy the warming weather and admire the beautiful flowers. Here are a few photos I have managed to capture of Cherry Blossom season.
