Yanaka Cemetary

Instead of the overcrowded Ueno Park, we wandered around Yanaka Cemetery which is also known for its cherry blossoms.
Cemeteries don't really bother me (although I might not want to be alone in one at night), and with people picnicking and playing music, it was quite festive.

  4. Thanks Amelia. They're already disappearing this week. Part of the beauty of cherry blossoms- their transient nature.
