Shinjuku Gyoen (March 29th)

Cherry "Someiyoshino".

We went to Shinjuku Gyoen to see some cherry blossoms. It was a little too early for the peak but several kinds of them were already blooming. Unfortunately it started to rain a bit and it was pretty cold all day.

Prunus x yedoensis cv. Amerika.

The white flower one... Probably Cerasus speciosa (Ooshima-zakura).
