2014 Hanami Season Starts!

Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) Season has finally come to Tokyo this week.  It is still not yet full blossomed, but with warm weather, many people were out today to enjoy it.

These are very unusual flowers - mixed in color - close from Takaido Station.

Almost fully blossomed flowers on trees on Kanda River by Kugayama.

The situation this afternoon at the eastern edge of the pond of Inokashira Park.

These people got a good spot for their picnic.

Hanami at the main part of the park - believe me, this is not yet crowded.

The main bridge of the pond was packed.

The view from the northern tip of the 

A close-up of flowers.

A nice one by the Benten.

 Picnickers on the south side of the pond - less crowded.

We should be able to enjoy the cherry blossom for at least a week (hopefully).

Great picture of the park! I see the pond has been refilled.
Wish I was there!
