No one thing in Japan is more synonymous with spring than the cherry blossom. A spring cherry blossoms photography tour is the best way to enjoy the season where everything comes alive in Japan, yet many people think that cherry blossoms come in just a few varieties and that from region to region that volume of cherry blossoms will give photographers the best shutter chances during a photo workshop.
Cherry blossoms have very different characteristics depending on where they are in Japan and what part of the season they are blooming. In Tokyo and other areas around Japan, there are kawazu sakura, the early blooming variety. And with the sweet aroma and nectar of the early blossoming sakura bring an entirely different form of enjoyment, birding photography with the mejiro. The Mejiro arrive as the cherry blossoms open to extract the delicious nectar from the cherry blossoms. The mejiro can be, however, a bit elusive, but part of a Blain Harasymiw photography tour is discussing photography conditions and the correct gear so you can capture the mejiro as it flutters from blossom to blossom. The contrast of the pictures with the pink blossoms and the shades of green and the white-eye of the mejiro mean pictures of a lifetime.
The fleeting beauty of the cherry blossom awaits you. Join a photography workshop and chase the rare delight that is the Japanese cherry blossom
