This wasn't one of my planned outfit for hanami. It was supposed to be raining according to the weather forecast so I dressed for yet another day of shopping & eating. But the weather held up well with slight overcast. Thus we decided to try our luck at Ueno Park to see if we could find any sakura since Ueno Park was deemed to be an early bloomer for sakura. We were exhilaterated, or at least I was, when I saw a mass of pinkness the moment I stepped into the park! It was more beautiful than I expected!!
Nothing could rival sakura. They awaken from the long winter slumber and BOOMZ! trees filled with nothing but gorgeous flowers. Not a single green leaf, only flowers and more pretty flowers. The leaves only appear after the sakura trees have reached full bloom thus gives the trees an attractive, homogeneous look while they are in full bloom. A friend commented on my fb that "if only human's hearts could open like sakura". How true.
I was in awe and got a little obsessed (understatement of the year). I took like a gazillion photos of sakura during my 2 weeks in Tokyo!! This oversized acid wash denim jacket came in really handy with 2 large pockets! I kept my iPhone in one pocket, Leica in another and hanged our Canon DSLR around my neck. I looked like one crazy woman snapping photos of cherry blossom with all 3 gadgets. LOL!
