Sakura Preview


I feel a little sad for my friend who visited all the way from the Philippines to experience Japan's world-famous cherry blossoms last week. Forecasts said that the sakura would have been in full bloom beginning March 24 but the weather turned out to be too cold still, thus delaying the shy flowers' rupture.

The sun has been blazing since Saturday, and hopefully, it succeeds in beating the chilly winds and usher in the full blooming of Tokyo in a few more days.




The pics here are of the few early starters we chanced upon as we toured the city. I will post this week's shots as soon as possible.

I have always been fascinated with sakura flowers. I think I read somewhere about another flower that lots a lot like sakura in Japan.

hi r-yo:

outstanding pics! transit ako ng tokyo on april 17, i'd like to visit Akibahara to check some camera. What store do you recommend? Mas mura ba sa Akihabara (say Canon EOS 50D) than buying in the US? What do you think?

Regards!

mandaragat: i think it's cheaper in the US. i suggest you check the prices there first so you could compare. Id be glad to show you around akihabara.
