Plum blossoms in late February and early March precede the more mainstream and famous cherry blossom season. Personally I prefer the deep pink color of the plum blossoms as opposed to the faint pink cherry blossoms. There are other locations like the Kameido Tenjin where you can enjoy great plum blossoms in the big city and this year I found Mukojima Hyakka-en which is close to the Tokyo Skytree, and it is a small and a quiet place with around 60-70 plum trees.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 14 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
