My 2010 – April

In April there was hanami. The cherry blossom trees were absolutely stunning, and I was walking around in a pink daze trying to take pictures of them all. Everywhere I went, it seemed like there was an even prettier tree with even more petals than the ones I had photographed already.

Hanami only lasts for a short time, and soon the ground was covered in petals.

And all the other flowers were really blossoming as well.

I never knew how many different kinds of cherry trees there were.

I found small temples and shrines and took pictures of the statues and flowers there as well. Tokyo is so busy, and then you enter through these gates, and all of a sudden everything goes quiet and peaceful.
