Seeking Sakura


The ephemeral and fragile beauty of the Sakura is best celebrated in Japan but for those of us that are many many miles away, this efflorescent event can still be sought out in our inner city corners.







Cherry blossoms can be found in London. The above photos were taken in various locations in Islington and Hackney.

  3. I'm so jealous since I live in the US. Been longing to go to Japan to moon watch under sakura blossoms...so dreamy. Perhaps I'll have to plant some on my own. Beautiful pictures though...and thanks for sharing dear!
