sakura season

The cherry blossom is blooming, and spring has arrived in Tokyo. I’ve been to see the different cherry blossom sites all around town, and here’s a selection of them. The wonderful blue skies contrasted with the deep pink of these trees around the Emperor’s palace…


…although you can see that the trees aren’t quite at peak blossom yet.


The night-time viewing at Naka-meguro is always wonderful along the canals…


and it was wonderful to stroll and enjoy the festival atmosphere!


There are cherry trees in the normal streets too, and this one is on the way to my studio. I like the mix of camelia with cherry blossom.

And my favourite spot, the Aoyama cemetery. No rowdy hanami parties, just gorgeous avenues of quiet flowers…


I love the cherry blossom season!
