Cherry blossom season has come swiftly, and actually caught me a little off-guard! However, I’m off to a good start, and thought I would share some photos with you of my adventures so far :)
Even before full bloom, the Meguro River area was packed with people when we went between 7 and 9pm (taken Apr. 2, 2017, for people who are trying to estimate how far the flowers have bloomed.) My friend’s parents and friends were visiting Japan, and we wanted to make sure they got to see some cherry blossoms while they were here, so that’s what drove us to go at such a crazy time!
If you spaced out a little bit and stared up through the branches, it felt like it was snowing, just frozen in time :) I took a video to show you what I mean!
Crowded or not, the Meguro-gawa is popular for a reason and is definitely worth venturing out to see.
