Shinjuku Hanami (新宿御苑)

Let me walk you through the best Hanami spot we've found in Tokyo so far. Where alcohol is banned and people are only allowed to enjoy the nature on its most magnificent cuteness - the sakura blossom. Welcome to Shinjuku Gyoen!

NTT DoCoMo Tower on the Left, Cocoon building (my fav!) on the right - Shinjuku's High Rise.

Sakura petals cover the ground on a dream-like carpet.

Shiro (白) Sakura.  Very special among the pink crowd.

Winter (冬) to the right...

…Spring (春) to the left!

Enjoying a the Sunday Brunch.

First steps on the grass

Barefoot, is best.

Spring has room for other shades, like deep burgundy.

…still, there's nothing like the pinkish-white under the sun.

- thanks for capturing this beauty, so we all can enjoy it even after it has passed away.

Today it was well, one of those perfect days. Sun, walk, lovely lunch, fika with friends, another walk, along Meguro river, with some more sakura in the Saigoyama sunset. Homemade dinner, in warm company.

Life's sweet, provided you have the sun & the people along with it. Enjoy it, as it lasts.

物の哀れ (mono no aware) - la belleza de lo efímero.

Si! Me compre las primeras en un mercadillo en Suecia, cuando vino mi Vero a verme. Estas vinieron de San Francisco, donde me tuve que comprar algo con lo que poder andar, que a 18C y con botas altas se me cocían los pies y con lo delicada que soy... Acabo con ampollas everywhere.

Hasta Enrique se terminó comprando unas. Mucho más cómodas que cualquier bailarina, por no mencionar el lado benéfico. En TOPSHOP Online vendían y con lo hundida que estaba la libra le salieron tiradas de precio.
