When I last went to Japan in the springtime, I was taken aback by the beauty of the gardens there. The rock gardens were very impressive, with different shapes in the sand and everything intricately designed.
The additional bonus of the Japanese gardens was the numerous amount of cherry blossom trees that were in full bloom that Spring. You couldn't walk anywhere without stumbling on at least one! Japan is a very beautiful with a rich history, and the gardens were an additional bonus to everything I experienced when visiting last spring.
“You couldn't walk anywhere without seeing cherry blossoms!”
