As the season of Sakura blossoms has stared, I've been visiting various places to get the best image of Sakura this year. And, I'm now in Meiji Jingu Shrine, one of the biggest shrines in Japan with more than 3 million visitors during new year's days.

You might doubt if Meiji Jingu Shrine has Sakura trees because of your image of this shrine. Most people imagine a vast gravel path with huge green trees on the both sides. And most people go to Yoyogi Park next to this shrine to enjoy Sakura, indeed.

I will definitely visit here again to enjoy Sakura blossoms in this holy spot soon!
