Sakura drops

The thing with sakura is that, it's fragile. Wind blows or rains, it will fall. And I can't capture the beautiful falling sakura on video or stills. Best to just enjoy the moment.

Someone told me that the Japanese (or most men) are pretty fleeting like the sakura. They only love you for just that short moment (just like the blossoms which last a few weeks and only for once a year) but I replied that it's better to be a sakura tree than a non significant tree that is never admired at all. Funny how you can get poetic that way with something beautiful. And he laughed.

The beautiful Mt Yoshino and it's jungle of sakura tree looking alot like cotton candy

The gorgeous weeping sakura tree in the middle of Maruyama Park in Kyoto - illuminated for only a few weeks

Kyoto Keage incline - old railtrack but oh so beautiful with cherry blossoms along the way

Just another bridge at another waterways in Kyoto
