A map and list of the key SOMEI YOSHINO (and a few weeping) Cherry Blossom spots in Saitama. There are many more, but these are some of the most famous / popular / stunning locations. I may add more in the future after I’ve ticked them off my list of places I want to go! Of the 135 on this list I have actually been to around 90 of them! Probably even 100, but I’m not going to start counting!! The other ones on the list are famous places, that while I haven’t seen them with my own two eyes, trust from the thousands of reviews online that they are as breathtaking as the ones I have had the pleasure of seeing.
