Sakura, on instagram
I can't believe how quickly sakura came into full bloom this year, they started to pop out about 10 days earlier than usual and once they started to pop out they were in full bloom before I knew it! Sakura blossoms only stay for about a week so I tried to go and see them as much as I can, just around in my neighbourhood. I will share more photos when I get my film developed later.

Sakura shots from previous years are here:
Kamakura, Jiyugaoka & Nakameguro, Nakameguro 2011 (when they didn't put lanterns because of the Fukushima incident), Jiyugaoka & Yagumo (Meguro), Kuhombutsu (Jiyugaoka), Denenchofu & Jiyugaoka, Denenchofu 2010, etc, etc...

I hope Spring is bringing you many little happy moments like it is to me.

P.S. I didn't realise but my blog turned 4 this March!! Wow!
