As-yet-unreleased dresses featured in the Juliette et Justine Spring-Summer 2014 catalog! 

Pretty sure I need the third one, which features an underwater motif: coral, jellyfish, seaweed and even a lobster!

Capturing the Cherry Blossom Season in Japan

To view more photos and videos of cherry blossoms and hanami parties throughout Japan, browse the #, #花見 and #お花見 hashtags on Instagram.

In Japan, sakura (桜), or cherry blossoms, stand as the symbolic flower of spring and start appearing all over the country as the seasons change. During this season, rows of cherry trees with their pastel-pink crowns transform the country and shower the streets in falling petals. People go out to gardens, streets and parks for hanami (花見), or flower viewing, to appreciate the beauty of the cherry blossoms and the mild weather after the long, cold winter. Often, hanami involves picnicking in the best sakura locations and enjoying food and drinks with friends under cherry trees. The blooming of sakura begins from the south around late March and spreads northward through the beginning of May.

Before going to Tokyo I searched for plum blossom spots, I made it today to one of them. As soon as we came in the vicinity we could smell the sweet fragrance of the ume blossoms. This is the Ushi Tenjin shrine near Tokyo dome. The ume matsuri celebrates the red variety of plum blossoms, which look striking against the background of the shrine buildings. This tiny shrine in the heart of Tokyo!
