Cherry Blossom Season In Tokyo

It’s no secret – I love cherry blossom season in Japan. There are lots of amazing events all year long here, but really nothing tops the cherry blossoms. If I’m totally honest though, I enjoy the season more out in the countryside away from the skyscrapers and crowds, exploring in the relative peace and quiet.

That one was taken with a wide angle lens, while this was taken with my 85mm (which on my cropped sensor body is a bit of a zoom). Two completely different views, but both just as...
