Cherry blossoms at Ueno Toshogu Shrine
The sakura trees went into bloom early this week in Tokyo. When it comes to cherry blossoms, many Tokyo residents head right away to Ueno Park.
Although there were no hanami parties under the blossoms this year, the flowers were still charming and made us stop for a minute to admire them.
The cherry blossoms were in almost full bloom at Ueno Toshogu Shrine and around the pagoda.
We felt lucky to be able to see them even just for a few moments.
The hanami lanterns are lit up in the evening. Although there is no laughter and chatting under the cherry trees in full bloom this year, just seeing the blossoms and these lights softening the dark gives us strength and resilience in these moments.
