If you’ve never seen cherry blossoms in real life you’re missing out. Chessy blossoms, or Sakura, looks absolutely stunning in bloom. The flowers it produces are the most beautiful shades of pink and seeing a street or a park covered in cherry blossoms is truly a sight to behold. It’s magical and mesmerizing and a sight everyone should witness at least once in their lifetime. It’s an unforgettable experience.
There’s a reason the Japanese are obsessed with Sakura. When the cherry blossoms season starts you’ll see that every Japanese shop and cafe will have something with cherry blossoms in it. Clothes, accessories, shoes with Sakura designs on them, they even have a cherry blossoms coffee drink in Starbucks. If you think that’s crazy, it’s because you haven’t seen cherry blossoms in real life. Trust me, you’d be obsessed too.
In case you still have some doubts about the beauty of cherry blossoms, let me tell you about Danilo Dungo. He’s a photographer who’s based in Tokyo. Danilo Dungo loves cherry blossoms so much that every spring, when it’s Sakura season, he goes to Inokashira Park to admire the sights and take pictures of cherry blossoms. And while you might’ve seen pictures of Sakuras in bloom, trust me, you’ve never seen pictures like Dungo’s. He uses drones to take the most gorgeous and mind blowing photos of Japanese cherry blossoms.
From above everything looks so much more beautiful and so much more impressive than we could ever imagine. The whole of Inokashira Park seems to be covered in pretty pink cherry blossoms. And even though Sakura blossom makes everything look great, including roads, trees, little park pathways and benches, there’s something especially fascinating and enthralling about watching those pink petals turn a lake into a magnificent pink and purple watercolor painting. Sakura blossoms really make the the whole of Tokyo look like a magical pink fantasy-land. Words fail to describe the beauty of this sight, so go ahead and enjoy the pictures.
