Dreaming of Sakura coming soon
There is alternative way of viewing Sakura, Yozakura,
Pale pink Sakura with blue sky will give us gorgeous feeling. It is really impressive. However there is alternative way of viewing Sakura, Yozakura. Yozakura literally means night Sakura, Pale pink sakura with black sky is breathtaking. Especially when lighted up, it will give you mystical and fascinating beauty as if we were in dream. To tell the truth my first dating was Yozakura viewing. =(^.^)= I assure it will be so romantic.
Here are some pictures of last year.
Some tips for Yozakura viewing.
- It is better to bring light jacket. Even though it is already spring, it may be cold sometimes during the nighttime.
- Not every place is lighted up. I think it is not good idea to visit cemetery like Aoyama or Yanaka at night. I can tell you where the best place is for Yozakura during my Tokyo History Express tour.
By the way according to the weather forecast the start of cherry blossom will be delayed a bit due to the cold weather this week. Now they forecast Sakura will start blooming on March 25 and get full in bloom in a week.
According to the weather forecast today (March 16), Sakura will start brooming on March 23 even if we expect a bit cold weather before that,
