Cherry Blossom Hunting in Kamakura, Part 1

Last Saturday the kids and I went to Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine in Kamakura for the day. Ethan was on a hike with the Boy Scouts and so we took advantage of the time to have a bit of Mommy Fun Time.
At Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, there is a Most Beautiful Cherry Blossom Walkway. When in full bloom... it's breathtaking. I have never seen it in person, only in photos.
I wanted to make sure the kids and I did not miss the chance to see the 1st Blooms, and possibly a few early trees.
The Slideshow below is a bunch of photo's of the Torii Gate/Shrine/Grounds and a few Early Cherry Blooms!
I have many more photo's to share from the day... but that will be in Part 2.
