A Perfect Sakura Afternoon.Tuesday, 6 April 2010
It was a perfect spring day in Tokyo today, sunny and warm finally! It was too good a day to work sitting in front of the computer so I decided to take an afternoon off and went out with my camera. I rode my bike to Den En Chofu which is next to Jiyugaoka, and then to Tamagawa-dai Park -one of hundreds of hanami spots in Tokyo, it's a beautiful big park located on the hill overlooking the Tama River.
When I was taking photos of sakura like a crazy girl, a gentleman talked to me and said "I used to have a camera that looked exactly like the one you have there many many years ago" pointing at my old canon. We chatted about sakura and camera briefly it made me smile even more :)
I love Japan more than ever, so I thought very strongly this afternoon. But to be honest, I must think and say that every Spring.
