Sakura Report 2015 - White Blossoms Fills the Spring of Tama River

Sakura Street Near Gas Bridge of Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (167mm, f/2.8, 1/640 sec, ISO-100)

It was just three days before when I found Sakura blossoms in half bloom here.

Sakura Report 2015 - Enjoying Sakura Blossoms Along Tama River While Heading to Sakura Spots of Tokyo

As I reached the Sakura street in front of Gas Bridge I found fully-bloomed blossoms in a row. Now, this famous running street has welcomed the most comfortable season of the year!

Right in front of the Koban (Small neighborhood police station) stands the monument of 21st century's Sakura. Sakura trees here are simply great.

The roof of Sakura blossoms spread along the river. Many people were walking under the roof while the Sakura blossoms were tweeting the comfortable sound of spring in the wind.

Here's the hanami spot of the 21st century's Sakura. I dear to say that this area is one of the best hanami spots with the clean green grass and lots of Sakura trees.

I walked down from the bank and looked up. It is pretty refreshing to walk on the bank of Tama River in Sakura season.

After going through the 21st century's Sakura, I reached an area where the Sakura trees stand below the bank. Some of the blossoms are even below where we walk.

I walked down from the bank a bit and bent my knees. Ah... this is definitely one of the most lovely views of Sakura this year. We can enjoy the bluish white, the reddish white and the greenish white. This is amazing.

Even the flowers of Japanese wild radish alone can invite the feeling of spring to the riverside.

I ran a bit to the upper reach. The big Sakura tree is gorgeously blooming. The riverside near Tamagawa Station looks a bit different because big single Sakura trees stand alone here.

 

Huge Sakura Tree along Tama River

This is wide and great. Too large to appear in the photo of the focal length of 50mm.

 

Spring from Under Sakura Tree along Tama River

Once you pay attention to the lower reach from below the branches, you can find a few people walking, or rather, having all of this vast riverside to themselves.

This is big and gorgeous, too. As the branches spread in the very low position, I tried to take photos of the blossoms with the Japanese wild radish below.

The Japanese wild radish is growing to the symbol of spring!

I clipped some of the blossoms into one photo. The atmosphere of the spring fills the background.

The best photo, or the purpose of today's run is here! As I said on the post three days ago, I had found some places where I saw the flowers of Japanese wild radish, Canola flowers, and Sakura buds. And now the Sakura tree is in full bloom. This is the spring of Japan!
