There were almost no sakura in bloom yet, but a couple of trees had started. If you click on the photos you can see them larger.
Today was supposed to be rainy, but the skies cleared and the weather is beautiful. I just came back from a bike ride along the Nakagawa, and you can see the sakura are in peak full bloom today, with some petals beginning to fall.
The video is a 45 second bike ride along the river looking at the cherry trees. Below that are some photos from today.
I can’t believe it’s already April! The cherry blossoms are essentially in full bloom now, though a few trees are hold-outs. Today is Friday, but I think weekend visitors to parks won’t be disappointed.
Below the very short video (just a few seconds) are some photos taken during my bike ride along the Nakagawa this afternoon.
I would say that for more than half the trees the cherry blossoms are, oh, 85% in bloom. For about 30% of the trees they are way less than that. So it’s not “mankai” yet, but pretty close! It’s also beautiful weather today.
These photos were taken just before, on a bike ride along the Nakagawa.
