Some pictures taken on the 21st of March 2012 in Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑).
Cherry blossoms are planned to be 10 days later than last year, around the 1st of April in Tokyo area. Ume are always a bit faster than cherry blossoms, and they are just beginning to open.
Feel free to click on them and upload them. I also have higher-definition pictures, the best ones are not uploaded on this blog to not load the server unnecessarily. So feel free to contact me in case you wish some.
Japan is famous in foreign countries for the beautiful pink cherry blossoms (Sakura) that bloom from mid-march to the end of March.
It is possible to do other hanami in Japan than the Sakura.
From mid-february to mid-march, you can find in a lot of places Ume blossoms. Ume are Japanese prunes.
Here are a couple of pictures that have been taken in Shinjuku Gyoen, in Tokyo. Enjoy!
I’ll try to publish pictures with cherry blossoms when they’ll bloom, in two weeks.
