Since JAPAN Forward asked readers and followers in mid-March to send us their original sakura photos this year, weâve been getting really amazing submissions.
Here are some of the best from the period of March 16-31.
Your sakura shots might be in our next gallery. Continue sending photos via Twitter @itsjapanforward or posting them to our Facebook thread: https://www.facebook.com/japanforward/posts/1611877002244949.
Please indicate the place where you took the photos.
