Kyoto: When Kimonos Drew Our Gaze Away From Cherry Blossoms

Springtime doesn’t just see the splurge of beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan, but also tourists who come to be smitten by the dreamy scenery. Sakura, as known locally, the flowers work their charm not only on the guests but the habituated locals too. They are everywhere, even going into the making of wine, chocolates, sweets, flavoured drinks, cupcakes, parfait, pancakes, chips, tumblers, mugs and what not! This is also the time when Japanese women dress up in their fine kimonos, adding more vibrancy to the whole place. On our trip to the iconic Fushimi Inari-Taisha shrine, we witness them as they take the day off to join in the festivities but not without posing for selfies.
