Last year, I went Rikugien Garden, Bunkyo-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.
There are famous Shidarezakura (Weeping Cherry tree).
It was too large to take photos of whole tree with 24mm lens.
This yaer, I used SIGMA 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG II HSM ultra wide lens to express its strength!
Close up of flower. Petal is a little smaller than ordinary Sakura.
TAMRON SP 35mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F012)
It’s like shower!!
You can know how large it is compared with people.
Here is so crowded during Sakura season!
I recommend to go weekday.
At night Sakura is lit up. It is so beautiful.
But using tripod and monopod are strictly prohibited all day long.
Taking photos with sitting and touching flower and tree is also prohibited.
Please take care other visitors and enjoy beautiful Sakura!
