Every April the bases in Japan have Cherry Blossom Festivals, the base is open for the local Japanese and it is a huge event and the line to get in seemed to go on forever. The one is Atsugi was this past weekend and me and Danny went and had a great time. The First Class Petty Officer's Association ran some game booths- they had a ball toss, three bouncy houses, and an Adult and Child Strongman. Danny ran the ball toss and strongman for a few hours, I swear he must have hit the bell like two hundred times! They made almost $3,000!! They also set up the run way with the different planes and sell merchandise from all the squadrons.
Here are some pictures of the cherry Blossom Trees
