Blooming Sakura in Kyoto

Melancholic charm in the ancient capital city

Unlike its other counterparts like Tokyo and Osaka, Kyoto has its own charm. With the abundance of old machiya town houses sandwiched by modern buildings around town, it is easy to fall in love with this former capital city of Japan.

I was strolling around town with no particular destination, just my feet going where the blooming sakura or cherry trees led me. There was just a melancholic feeling behind this old city.

Some of the best places to see cherry blossoms include the Philosopher's Path and the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
