Goodbye Cherry Blossoms

The past two days have been extremely rainy here in Tokyo, which means that hanami, or flower viewing season, is over. The rain has pulled all of the delicate blossoms from the trees, lining the sides of the streets with thin carpets of white flowers.

The blossoms are still in season further North, so pretty soon I’ll be heading up there to show visiting friends the majesty.

Until then, here are some pictures I took of the blossoms in Yoyogi Park.
