Today was a perfect spring day in Tokyo. It was cool but with a bit of warmth in the air, everything clean from a few rainy days but for the most part dry, and the sky varying between clear blue, blue with puffy white cumulus, grey overcast, and back to blue. All in all it made for an ideal day to take the camera on a meander through the city for a while.
Everything at Ueno park is ready for the cherry blossoms to appear. Festive lights have been strung, massive refuse collection points have been set up, and the park was full of people… But the trees decided to hold out a little longer, leaving this weekend to the handful of Japanese Apricot trees in the park that, having heralded the changing season, are gracefully passing their peak.
