While most of Japan seems to be in full cherry blossom season mode, they’re really taking their time in Takamatsu this year.
I just returned from the cherry tree from the other side of the street and here is what I got for you:
I really really love my new camera. Those “close-ups” were taken with the flowers actually being about three meters high. There was no way I could do that with my old camera.
As you can see on this last picture, it’s really just a few flowers that are in bloom, we’re very far from having full trees. I guess we’ll need to be a little more patient.
On the good side, when flowers will be pretty much gone in Kanto, Kansai and many other places, they’ll still be around this year.
Still, this is one of the reasons I’m not too happy that the Setouchi Triennale is starting so late this year. Discovering the new art during cherry blossom season was just priceless three and six years ago.
