Spring in Shinjuku Gyoen

One glance at my Instagram account will show you how fascinated I am with spring in Japan and how much I admire the blooms adorning the landscape, especially the cherry blossoms. Now that the last month of May is coming to an end I wanted to share my favorite photos all taken at Shinjuku Garden. I like to think of it as the Central Park of Tokyo – vast, lush and full of character. During this cherry blossom season I returned here four times, each week having my breath taken away. Seeing yaezakura (the later type of sakura with dozens of petals and vibrant pink color) in particular never fails to make my heart pitter-patter. shinjuku-gyoen-garden-tokyo-11

  1. Your blog posts should be prescribed to people who need cheering up, Nano. I feel brighter and happier for having seen these wonderful photos. I particularly love the ones with the elderly Japanese couples in front of the beautiful blossoms. Thanks so much for cheering me up on #FarawayFiles

  2. These are so beautiful – I can really understand why the cherry blossom season is such a big thing… and I’m sure I would have taken at least as many photos, really gorgeous. Thanks for linking up with #citytripping

  3. Oh absolutely gorgeous!! Yes, I remember seeing lots of your photos of sakura in Instagram :-) The gardens indeed look like Central Park of NY, and how amazing it is to have a picnic under a cherry blossom tree. Breathtaking and beautiful! #citytripping
