Sakura fever

April 5, 2010

Yesterday the cherry blossoms were at their peak and sakura fever definitely had its grip on Kyoto. The streets were packed with people and there were traffic jams throughout the city. It’s hard not to get caught up in it all so here is a photographic essay for just a taste of it.

Cherry blossom along the Kamo River, with the northern hills in the distance.
