Sakura 2016, Rikugien Garden


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!

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!
