Haven't been out too much lately because I have pollen allergy. But this is not the sign of spring I want to talk about today. It's the Ume flower (plum blossom).
These are white Ume flowers but you can see a lot of pink ones too. This flower is often mistaken with the Sakura (Cherry Blossom) because it is very similar. I can't really tell you what are the differences because I don't really know. However, Ume flower blooms a lot earlier than Sakura.
Information about Japan in English is scarce. Here I'll try to write just about every aspects of Japan through my experience living here. Feel free to leave any comments or just click the "clap" button if you like it.
