Pink Cherry Blossoms in Meguro

Taken last Spring. When I first came to Japan, I was surprised to learn that there were various types of cherry blossoms. Japan is most famous for its light pink/almost white variety that has become synonymous with Spring time (the ones you so often see in dramas and animes). I will admit that those light pink cherry blossom trees in full bloom is truly a magnificent sight; however, I prefer the darker blossoms that bloom a deeper hue. They’re a little more rare in Tokyo and slightly harder to find, but I find that deep pink, almost maroon color absolutely beautiful!
