My first trip to Japan was in March of 2014. We selected this date for the purpose of being able to view the sakura. It is such a beautiful sight and one we don't get to see back home. We were nearing the end of our trip and the sakura had not yet bloomed. But with just a few days remaining, our fortunes turned in our favour. We woke up to the beautiful sight of sakura blooming all over the place. This collection of photos are of the various sakura around Tokyo taken at the Imperial Palace Garden, Asakusa and the little Zenko-ji temple off Aoyama-Dori.
