Cherry Blossom: Japan by SheltieWolf Cherry Blossom: Japan by SheltieWolf

Sakura(桜=Cherry blossom) is blooming terribly early in Japan this year because of an abnormal weather. Blooming began the last week and Tokyo is in full bloom just now. :)
(The normal sakura season in Tokyo have always been one week from the end of March to the first of April.)

I went to Chidori-ga-Fuchi(千鳥ヶ淵) yesterday(22th Mar). Chidori-ga-buchi was one of the big moats of Edo Castle(江戸城) which had been a residence of Tokugawa(徳川) shogun(将軍) clan in Edo period(1603-1868). (Edo is ancient name of Tokyo.)
Chidori-ga-Fuchi is very famous as one of the best view point of blooming sakura in Tokyo. :D
A lot of Japanese people enjoyed Hanami(花見) -walking under trees of sakura and looking beautiful flowers-. There are lots of boats on moats. I guess it's also brilliant to go boating on the moat for looking sakura. :)

You must come to Japan in the sakura season someday. It's the most beautiful season in Japan. :D

First of all
I wish I could find better words to describe your picture,
but for now
all I can write is
that you captured very nice shot! :)

Secondly, if you do not mind
I read here almost all of your comments, as I noticed you're :) very kind person (although I do not know a lot about you-the Japanese but truly I've always imagined 
your people as a very kind and well-meaning)

I am from
a very far far away (small country (in Europe), but even though I love my country very much, I really wish I could somehow born in KYOTO ... I'm sure I sound funny :)
to you but, never mind...

One day I will
definitely visit Kyoto (
long ago the capital of Japan) and enjoy the season of Sakura :) beauty of cherry blossom.
Maybe my wish come true to go and live there!


拝啓 = sayonara ;)

Thank you very much! :)

I'm greatly glad you are interested in Japan.
I hope you will get a chance to visit someday. :)

Especially Kyoto is a beautiful city. There are lots of old temples, jinja and traditional buildings. :p

You're welcome :-)

Yes, I know
that I will one day visit that's for sure

and as for the Kyoto hmmm :) only thing I can say is, "wait for me, I surely will come"!

Sorry if my comments are very long :-(
I even trying to write as briefly as possible,
I'm just very happy that I can exchange a few words with someone who was from there - Japan :)

P.S. Excuse my ignorance
If it is not a problem, please tell me what it means "jinja"?

Jinja means Shinto shirines. :)
