It looks pretty gorgeous even without the water reflection. This is 100+ years old, and the trunk looked dark and firm.

I managed to take a photo of the Sakura and the train. Photographers nearby told me that this place is also famous for this train.

This is the sunset time. The sun shed warm sunlight to the Sakura tree and the forest in the background.

After a brief period of the cloudy sky, the sun appeared again. But as the sun was half-hidden in the mountain, only the forest acquired the warm sunlight. The contrast between the warm colors and the cold colors looked interesting. And I love the sky blue on the pond.

And this is the best shot as I explained in the previous post. It was a bit earlier than the sunrise, when the sunshine through the foliage spread among the mist.

There were still plenty of photographers even at the time when I decided to leave. There were almost 25 photographers at the peak. Their passion for Sakura is simply amazing.
