Sakura Delight Rikugien – video |not food|

There are swarms of people from all walks of life were here today, and it isn’t what I would would call relaxing. Yet there is something special about the beauty of the the sakura flowers.

The individual parts are so very delicate and the overall impression makes you feel in awe as you stand under it looking up to the sky. The video doesn’t do it justice but its better than nothing.

This is considered as of today one of the top cherry blossoms at the moment. No doubt the top locations are very busy unless you are there first thing in the morning.

The crowds are becoming heavy in the afternoons and in the evening tonight we will return to see Rikugien to watch the shidare sakura tree.

The name Rikugi-en means Garden of the Six Principles of Poetry which comes from the idea of the six elements in waka poetry while en means garden or park.
