sakura season

This week has been the hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season in Tokyo, and I went to see a different sakura area every day.

The beauty of the sakura trees in full bloom, all at once, is incredible!

This sketch was done in Yoyogi Park today, with the cherry trees mixed in with all sorts of others...


I loved the walk around chidorigafuchi, the moat of the emperor's palace.


And I especially loved the sakura at night, along the Naka Meguro canal, lit with lanterns.
