Since the sakura began to blossom, I’ve only managed to get good pictures of the cherry blossom for a couple of times. Considering I’m living in Tokyo now, I thought I’d be able to completely immerse in Tokyo’s springtime like never before, but obviously, that’s not the case 😆 The weather’s hardly kind — it’s been mostly cloudy, rainy and windy (making the petals fall even sooner). The number of times the weather was good and sky is clear, I kept on thinking, “I will go out and experience it again” but before I knew it, they’re gone!
What’s a girl to do? I read that if you miss the sakura, you can go to Shinjuku Gyoen to see the late blooming cherry trees planted across the garden. So I went to the garden over the weekends and spent some hours at the Shinjuku Gyoen’s Japanese Traditional Garden. It’s a trip worthwhile.
If you plan to catch the late bloomers, head to the Shinjuku Gyoen 🙂
