Cherry blossom season is an important and symbolically reach event in Japan. I share my favourite place to view cherry blossoms in Nagoya.
In the Yagoto area of Nagoya is a small temple and garden complex. There is a five story pagoda and other buildings scattered around. The smell of incense floats through the air, and if the time is right, the chanting of monks can be heard. The grounds are not busy, making it a peaceful place to relax and wander. A little cafe sells ice cream cones, and twice a month there is small flea market.
At the Tile Museum near Nagoya, Japan you can paint your own mini toilet. It will be fired and sent to your address in Japan. A fun experience and souvenir.
