Shonandai Sakura

Yesterday, I went back to the river to take some pictures of the cherry trees with my camera.  Not my iPhone, but my actual digital camera.  It’s been a while since I’ve posted pictures from it.  Well, these cherry trees line the Hikichigawa River in the Shonandai area of Fujisawa.  Most of the cherry blossoms are a light pink, but there are a few trees with white blossoms.  Those trees appear a light green because of the leaves.  Please enjoy the photos!  And after that, there’s a video.  The first 2 photos are from Kirihara Park, while the rest are along the Hikichigawa River.  There were plenty of people in Kirihara Park enjoying hanami parties.

And here’s a feathered friend!

Finally, here’s the video.  It’s about 5 1/2 minutes long.  It’ll give you an idea what the area was like.

  7. You know… you’d think I’d get sick of sakura photos but… I never do.
    There’s just something about scenic pictures (and videos!!!) like this that just makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
    Thank you for joining Show Me Japan this week with so many wonderful shots!
