Lost in Fascination (with Cherry Blossoms)

Whoooooo!!! Greetings from springtime in Tokyo, where everything is pink! Well, maybe not everything… but ’tis the season when all the cherry blossoms are in bloom and it’s kind of rainy and windy so the blossoms are blowing everywhere like snowflakes in the air and on the ground. Such a trip!

On Sunday, we caught one of the last official days of “hanami” parties in Harajuku’s Yoyogi Park where thousands of people were out picnic-ing under the blossoms! So fun.

And all you do is cruise around the park with friends…

And take pretty pictures…

And then go look for more place to see the blossoms, like at Kitanomaru Park next to the Imperial Palace grounds in the middle of the city…



And then, you go look for even more places to see blossoms, like at the Hanazono-Jinja, a Shinto shrine in the Shinjuku neighborhood.



Yeah, cherry blossom season is pretty cool! Pretty, pretty springtime to all.
Signing off, so zen-ed out,
