Hanami

Hanami (花見 – flower, see) is a Japanese tradition where people enjoys contemplating flowers. People goes wherever there are blossomed trees and do picnics below them. The most important hanami season happens when the cherry trees blossom (Sakura), it happened here in Tokyo two weeks ago and it’s finished by now. This year we had an splendid weather and I had the chance to visit many places with beautiful sakura in Tokyo. Here are some pictures I took in Asakusa, Shinjuku Gyoen, Yoyogi, Naka-Meguro and Meiji Jingu.

  1. Your pictures are great. Some of the best Hanami pictures I have seen. That last picture is of Asakusa, correct? I believe the Sakura above the shops are fake also but it still looks very nice.

  2. Great shots!

    I’d wanted to see the Nakameguro Yozakura… but didn’t have enough time.. I wonder if the lights are still on…?

  3. Incredibly beautiful landscape and lighting at night. Don’t see stuff like that in Coral Gables 🙁

  4. I love #9.. the complete mass of people congregrating over this heavenly white, its natures rock concert yo.

  5. Nice photos. I was in Nakameguro this weekend. Just past their prime but still nice. also a great place to spend time.

  6. Qualche settimana fá ho visto in tv líndirizzo di questo blog;e presa dalla curiositá sono venuta a sbirciare un po`.Sono senza parole!realmente le foto sono bellissime,tanto per l`imaggine rappresentata come artisticamente.complimenti.

  7. Hey wonderful photos!

    I like how the sakura flowers look white, while the tree barks are black. Making it look like a black and white photo.

    Then comes everyone in colorful clothings.. ^^
