Cherry Blossom Festival at Donghaksa

Cherry Blossom Festivals are a big deal in South Korea. Every year around March-May, Korean cherry blossoms sprout all over the country. They are beautiful and majestic, and they are definitely a site to be seen – even if you are not a huge fan of flora. Cities and temples everywhere hold festivals to celebrate the short-lived blossoms. The Cherry Blossom Festival at Donghaksa is no different.
