Hey, I can’t help myself – they’re pretty.
Two more rounds of cherry blossom shots. The daytime ones are from Shinjuku Gyoen, a large former Imperial garden just steps away from the madness of central Shinjuku. It was a drizzly and overcast day, which never lends itself to getting good photos, but the setting was still pretty spectacular.
The nighttime shots are from Chidorigafuchi, a section of the old Edo Castle moat near Kudanshita Station. They have a few hundred Sakura planted alongside the moat and they’re quite lovely, but the real draw here is that the trees are illiuminated at night. This was a warm and clear evening with a full moon, so it was quite a sublime sight to see.
