Cherry blossom viewing in Iwakuni

Usually it takes about two hours to drive from Hamada to Iwakuni.

Not in cherry blossom season…

We got off the highway about 11 and it took two hours from the highway exit to reach the famous bridge. I took turns driving  in the traffic jam while my husband walked at the side of the road, much faster than the cars!

The park was very busy but the trees were spectacular. We took a cable car to the castle too and saw the famous white snakes of Iwakuni.

Nice day out!
