The weather in Tokyo has been colder than expected. For two weeks we did not see any cherry blossoms due to the unusually cold weather. But this week (finally) the sakura is facially making an appearance and yes it's as magical as advertised.
This picture was taken at Sumida Park in Tokyo. It's one of the more local places to enjoy the cherry blossoms and I can't recommend it enough. Sakura season attracts HUGE crowds so if you are looking for a peaceful stroll amongst beautifully blossomed trees head to Sumida Park in early morning and you won't be disappointed.
