Episode 9: The Color Plink


“It's a very light plink... it's almost like a whitish color.” — Vivian

Through April and early May, Japan experiences cherry blossom season. This is an event that the entire country anticipates, with tons of cherry-blossom-themed items for sale and celebrations. We discuss what we think about the season and how it compares to the rest of Japan's weather.

In this episode, we cover:

  • What a cherry blossom season actually looks like

  • How it is different living here versus visiting during spring

  • Our ranking of the best seasons to come to Japan

  • The long awaited Huel mid-roll ad

To try out Huel yourself, use Dru’s friend referral code at bit.ly/sanfransokyo-huel. (DISCLAIMER: Huel does not actually sponsor us)


This is the second part of a longer discussion of observing Japanese culture through our experienced eyes as well as the first-time mindset of a lot of our visitors.
