It was fine today enjoying cherry‐blossom viewing in Tokyo, with very warm 17 degrees centigrade temperature. Cherry blossoms are energetic as you see though a strong wind blew yesterday.
Strangely, the Japanese likes to spread out a blue sheet at the time of enjoying seeing cherry blossom, why blue, why sheet?

Great shot of the cherry blossoms. Your composition is fine including the people in the foreground with the deep blue sky forming a nice backdrop. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail.

Hisashi-san kon nichi wa !
Ah you're into sakura too I see, the difference being that your pictures are nearly live ones and not from the archives like mine. This one is very luminous and also representative of how Japanese people enjoy the sakura gathering on these blue sheets, reminds me of very pleasant time while visiting your country two years ago :-)
Have a nice day JY

Konnichiwa Hisashi-san. This is a very nice Hanami update from Tokyo; when my wife and I were there two weeks ago, the blossoms had just started to open (but now we have seen very beautiful sakura in the Okayama and Hiroshima areas). I like the dense framing that includes a lot of charming and lively details on the typical way in which the people here enjoy this time of the year. Good capture.

Hi Hisashi, very amazing colours here and very interesting too as a subject and presentation - I was in Japan for the hydrangea seasons, when everyone was enjoying the blossoms and many photographers were there to take those flowers at their best ; interesting events, those outings to enjoy together the flowers ! I like your note and your question but I don't have an answer !
