12/04/2018. Tree shaped like monk faces smiling to everyone, enjoy their time admiring azaleas.
12/04/2018. Everyone sooo excited this year! Azaleas 🌺 look sooo fluffy 💕
Sepertinya musim semi tahun ini bunga-bunga yang mekar cantik-cantik! Matengnya pas 💕
02/04/2018. Last 🌸 hanami in Tokyo well spent 🤗
02/04/2018. It feels odd if in this season I don’t come to this place for hanami. Even though the queue was long, and that day was quite hot. Shinjuku Gyoen always has its charm to attract people to come—and me of course 😊
Good night, Tokyo! . 📸: Tokyo Midtown, 2017.
Sungai Motoarakawa (元荒川), Fukiage, Saitama. Permainan bebatuannya yang bikin sungai ini jadi cantik banget. Ngeliatnya bikin adem. Suasana jadi melankolis romantis gara-gara bunga sakuranya berguguran—ya jangan baper terus terjun ke sungai tapi ya! Sakit, terlihat dangkal soalnya. Yaaah, kalo kata anak jaman now: Wagelaseh! 🤪
A memorable visit without a huge crowds 💕
30/03/2018. Was a good day. Just sat and relax, seize the moment 😊
A serene afternoon at Motoarakawa River.
Kumagaya Fortress (熊谷桜堤), Kumagaya, Saitama. A place that known since Edo Period for sakura spot. A contrast beauty of blue sky, nanohana (rapeseed) & sakura. The color of sakura change between white to very soft light pink depends on light of the sun. Heaven on earth!
30/03/2018. A glimpse of Kumagaya Fortress. It was a good decision to go to Saitama to relax and enjoy luscious landscape. Such a stress relief because Tokyo is too crowd for me in this hanami season. I spent half day here. Love seeing everyone enjoying their time; a couple of elderly had a nice lunch under the tree, a group of grannies outing together to enjoy sakura, parents took pics of their children, single man took a nap under the tree, etc. Saitama never fails me since last spring went to see Shibazakura, on summer went photo hunting of Poppies, on winter to see icicle park (during autumn is breathtaking too! But I missed it). Sakura season? BEAUTIFUL. No wonder this place becomes #1 of Popular NATIONWIDE Cherry Blossom Viewing Spot 2018 based on hanami walker-plus at that time—just realized it when I went back home to Tokyo, the ranked is being updated everyday 😱❤️
🌬🌸 . The mellow part of hanami (花見, flower viewing)
Everytime I look at this picture, I always play “Coldplay - Another’s Arms” in my head 💕 . 📸: The Illumination of Meguro River Cherry Blossom Festival, 2017.
Day (2018) & Night (2017) of Chidorigafuchi (千鳥ヶ淵). No wonder this place become one of the most favorite Hanami spot for both local & foreigners. PS: You can rent a boat during the night. But unfortunately last year at that day the wind quite strong so it closed.
Terkadang alam suka memberikan kejutan. Seperti foto ini diambil yang bersamaan dengan hembusan angin yang menebarkan kelopak Sakura yang berguguran, si cantik yang rapuh. Ada berapa kata ‘yang’ dalam satu kalimat di atas? 🤪
