Cherry Blossoms at Mizumoto Park Tokyo || Lightroom Only

As January nears its end, my mind starts turning towards the fast approaching cherry blossom season. Especially since this will be my last cherry blossom season as a resident of Japan, I’m aiming to make the most of it.

    Kochia at Hitachi Seaside Park

In the autumn, they cover...

        Falling Of The Blossoms at Mizumoto Koen

        The 2014 Cherry Blossom season has come and gone around the Kanto region of Japan. It was great and I will have many photos to share over the coming weeks, but I did want to share this one I took in Mizumoto Park in Tokyo. This park is actually on the outskirts of Tokyo, and...
