We start our travels in Japan. Every spring, people across Japan flock to parks, gardens and temples to partake in the annual ritual known as Hanami. This long standing custom of welcoming spring with a picnic and viewing of the beautiful "sakura"cherry blossoms is a wonderful tradition.

With our "Spring in Japan" Socks you can capture the essence of the beautiful blooms to wear year round! The delightful toe up socks feature an exquisite blossom lace pattern that runs up the front of the sock, with a smaller blossom running up the back. You'll love wearing these socks anytime you need a burst of spring color!
