Many people are wondering if they will see Sakura this year. The problem was a very warm the last few months sped up the blossoms to a stage where they were beginning to appear early.
So for those foreigners who planned to see sakura at the beginning of April, they will be lucky. The weather in Tokyo became suddenly cold, and it slowed sown the sakura opening for at least a week.
Now we have sakura at 10% but in the near future if it warms up, and it is, the flowers will begin to rapidly bloom. The weather will be very warm next week and on Monday a shower to clean the buds and water the pedals. Here are my first shots.
