Japan Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) 2015–Shinjuku Gyoen Park

Shinjuku Gyoen ParkIn yesterday’s post about Android 5.1 R3 update, I mentioned we were just about go out on a one day trip. This trip was to the Shinjuku Gyoen Park in, well, Shinjuku, to see Cherry Blossoms. This is my second visit, but for my wife and kid, this is their first visit. Part of the 2011 company get together – the event part – was held there.

Before heading there, we weren’t sure if Sakura was at full bloom. I’m sure there are websites that report about the current state, but I couldn’t find any concrete information about it. So we had to make a guess based on the information presented on this website.

We hadn’t made a mistake. In most parts of the park, the Sakura trees were in full bloom. Of course there were many trees that had flower buds that were only starting to bloom. The peak probably would be around the middle of the next week. But we won’t be able to visit there during that time, because of work. But we might visit another Sakura sightseeing area in the next weekend as well, just to see if we can gain an even better experience.

But until then, here are some of the snaps that I took from my Canon 70D. (Of course I took way more than that, but my wife and kid are in them, so I would not post them on the open internet.)
