Sakura 2016, Sumida River


Sumida River is one of famous Hanami place in Tokyo.
I love bridges at Sumida River.
Unfortunately I couldn’t go Hanami to Sumida River last year, so this year, I went there.

Near from Asakusa Station, Sakura trees are standing along Sumida River.

Boat pier is full of people! In this season, so many cruising boats and house boats are seen on Sumida River.

I walked to Sakurabashi Bridge(toward upper stream). There are no food stalls. Because stalls are prohibited around here. People bring their foods and drinks. Please bring back the trash.

This is old postcard from Taisho to early Showa Period (Maybe 1920s to early 1930), Hanami scene at Mukojima. Direction is opposite. But similar atmosphere.

There was a cafe managed by Mukojima community.

Since Meiji period, Mukojima is famous for beautiful Geisha.
In this cafe, geisha serves Japanese tea and sweets.

Skytree is difficult to see from Mukojima side. Too near and highway disturbs. I walked toward down stream.

At night. Sakura is lit up! Number of people increased at night. And this day was windy. So I couldn’t take photos well.
