Cherry Blossoms in Jinhae

There are cherry blossoms everywhere in Jinhae, Kwang's hometown. As they fall to the ground people scoop them up and throw them in the air. We saw a bunch of older ladies doing this and having a blast. Apparently, Jinhae is a prime cherry blossom spot because the Japanese brought them over and planted them along the streets during the occupation time period. Sort of a bitter sweet reminder of that time period.
