Uwahh, spring has come… flowers are blossoming everywhere, especially sakura AKA cherry blossom, which always be the main object for everything related to spring 😀
According to Wikipedia, most Japanese schools and public buildings have cherry blossom trees outside of them. In front of Tokodai main building, there is a sakura yard… Well, not much but at least both side of the yard is occupied with Sakura tree. Many said that Tokodai’s sakura are among the most beautiful in Tokyo (but my tutor said perhaps the most beautiful among Tokyo Universities). So many people come, then Tokodai built a wooden deck so everyone could enjoy the beautiful sakura pleasantly.
I think the sakura are all the same, not until yesterday April 1st, when I saw spectacular scenery of the yard which make me smile instantly! True, flowers bring happiness.
Btw, regarding this sakura in Tokodai (and also in other universities), there are two events that usually collides with the blossoming sakura. Graduation (卒業) and new education year. Graduation, this year, took place at March 26th while the new education year always started in April 1st.
So during those two days, the sakura yard is always packed with people, not to mention the other day when colleagues and civilians around Tokodai civilized the yard for 花見 (hanami – sakura viewing). So these were the photos I could get with the iPhone (no zoom, sorry).
