The first blossoms to bloom in the Tokyo area each year are the "Ume" or "Japanese Apricot" blossoms. This was in the grounds of the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum.
[Additional Tech Info]
The reason the background is so blurred is because I use a 100-300mm lens at it's full extent with the widest aperture for the lens (5.6 when at 300mm). This on a Canon D30, because the lens is calculated at 1:1.6, means it is actually 580mm. I moved well back, as the subject was actually quite close, and mounted the camera on a tripod to avoid camera shake.
