Tokyo, Japan – Cherry Blossoms

I was in Japan last week and had a free morning on Saturday before my flight left to take some photos.  I was staying in Tokyo and was happy to get a chance to see the Cherry Blossoms just starting to bloom!   It is a magical time in Japan.  The next 2 weeks in Tokyo will be amazing!  If you ever get a chance to visit this time of year…it is indeed special!    This tree was going strong!  A few others were not as far along as this one.   There was a nice crowd around this particular tree as you can see how beautiful it was!  I added a little diffuse glow to the photo to soften the look a bit.   I have an HDR from here as well…will post it soon!   Spring has arrived!
