Yasukuni Shrine – Sakura Season Nearly Here

Posted in Places by tokyobling on March 23, 2014

By this date last year the official Sakura season here in Tokyo had already started but this year the trees seems to be a little bit less hurried. Yesterday I visited the famous Yasukuni Shrine in Kudanshita to see the official sakura tree for myself. The buds where there but not ready to burst open just quite yet. Of the hundreds of cherry trees in the shrine I saw only one that had started flowering, but not the official tree. So not yet, but any day now, the tree here in Yasukuni will start flowering.

    Our dear trees are blooming nicely, well, having around 20 degrees makes things easier! 🙂 Hope you will keep us posted on the sakuras!
