Sakura season is just around the corner! Iwakuni's Kintai Bridge and surrounding Kikko Park is (in my slightly biased opinion) one of the most lovely spots in all of Japan to view the cherry blossoms and have a hanami picnic. Over the past three years, I have come to love Kikko Park and all the quirky, yet charming attractions it has to offer, so I was thrilled to have the chance to write and illustrate a travel article about it in the latest edition of GetHiroshima (view the entire Spring 2015 issue here).
Looking forward to enjoying a few hanami picnics during our final spring while stationed in Japan! So excited that my mom will be visiting during this most beautiful season in the land of the rising sun.
