ははのひ、おめでとう Happy Mother’s Day

11 May

Hiragana Mama and family in Kyoto

Happy Mother’s Day weekend (haha no hi), everyone. Whether you are a mother or not, I hope it is a wonderful weekend. I will be reflecting on my past few years as a mother and how much my heart has grown with the addition of my two little ones.

One of my favorite Mother’s Day songs includes the words, “Dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you.” So I thought I would post some pictures of the beautiful cherry blossoms (sakura) we saw while we were in Japan. If my children think of these beautiful sakura flowers when they think of me, I will be one happy mama 🙂

The flower associated with Mother’s Day in Japan is the carnation. For Japanese Mother’s Day coloring pages and printable coupons, click here.

    Beautiful!!! I’m so jealous you get to visit Kyoto during sakura season. Hopefully I can go there during my next visit but I highly doubt it’s sakura season… I used to visit Kyoto often when I was still living in Japan (and I didn’t “love” the city as much as I do now – how ironic!). Your family is beautiful Hatsuho!

What do you think? どうおもう?
