    • As I get many inspirations from a cherry tree, I’m really glad to perceive this photograph which has such stimuli. I appreciate your nice words, Dieu.

  4. 今年はあまり撮影チャンスが少なかったと思いますのに、見事に影を活かした作品ですね。 Amazing

    • ありがとうございます。嬉しいです。桜の優美さと妖しさを醸すため、どの時間帯に撮影すればよいか悩みました。今年は特に桜の開花が早く、寒い日も続いたので撮影は諦めていましたが、ギリギリの所で見に行けて本当に良かったです。散り際も見事でした。

  5. These are impossibly beautiful. Wow.

    • Thank you very much, Michael! The cherry blossoms are the most famous flower in all Japan…but the beauty of these are momentary and ephemeral.

  6. Magic. Absolutely stunning, Akanedou.

  10. Beautiful photos – I recently attended the cherry blossom festival in Washington DC, the trees being a present from Japan. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    • Thank you very much for your comment, Kim! A cherry blossom is a flower which has been loved continuously by Japanese since ancient times. So I would be happy if you liked it.

    Amazing. I love all your sets! They’re truly pieces of art.

    • Thank you for your comment, Benjamin! In Japan, cherry trees have swept many poets off their feet since ancient times. Cherry trees are closely related to Japanese art.
