Hanami at Shinjuku Gyoen

Hanami in Japanese means flower appreciation. Thousands of Japanese flock to the parks to have parties under the cherry blossom trees. It is really a nice thing to do in a sunny day of spring time.

I went to the Shinjuku Park on last Saturday to see how the Japanese people carry out their Hanami.

There were in fact thousands of people at the park, if not more! All of them were there with loads of food and drinks. Some were families and most were groups of friends having their parties there.

All the cherry blossom trees were blooming when I was there. There were many types of them. They formed a sea of colours which was a really nice scene to appreciate.

There was even a tree with cherry blossoms of multiple colours. There were reds, pinks, and pinks with red stripes.

There is a pond inside the park surrounded by the cherry blossom trees, making the cherry blossom appreciation even more enjoyable.

The reflection of the trees on the pond made the scenery even more tranquil.

In no time, it was already near to closing time of the park.

It is the season of love, and the best thing to do for lovers is Hanami.

I was very lucky to see those cherry blossoms on last weekend. I think due to the rain yesterday, they are all gone by now.
