Cherry Blossoms 2013 / 桜 2013

This year I didn't think I was going to get a chance to see any cherry blossoms at my leisure except through the windows of a bus.  I had no time for any excursions during the weekday and the weekends when the blossoms were in full bloom, I had other plans.  So imagine my surprise when on a Sunday at the end of March as the wife and I were headed to Budokan for the D-Lite concert, we saw cherry blossoms in full bloom around an area called Chidorigafuji.


Okay, no cherry blossoms on the picture above but I thought it looked rather scenic.


Some other flowers in bloom as well.  Unfortunately, I am not a flower expert so I don't know what kind of flower this is.


You can see some people having their hanami beneath the trees.


I think this might be my favorite cherry blossom picture this year with its reflection in the pond.


Until next year.

I didn't get a chance to visit Chidorigafuchi this year, but it's definitely The Number One Cherry Blossom Spot in Tokyo. ^^
