Another cherry blossom season has come and gone (at least in Tokyo), and I’ve got a veritable ocean of images to wade through as proof! Unfortunately, this year was more cloudy and rainy than normal. There were only maybe 2 truly good weather days during the season, and only one while things were at full bloom. Nevertheless, I took a lot of images and have several that I’m very pleased with. So I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the 2016 cherry blossom season in Japan. These come from various places in the Tokyo area – the specific location is written above each image. You can click on any of the photos to see a larger version and/or purchase a print. Enjoy!
