The Weeping Sakura tree of Hanazono showed various figures during my trip. Let me share 11 photos of this Sakura tree to you. If you want to see the floral town of Tanagura, please check the previous post, too.
Sakura Report 2015 - Floral Town of Tanagura, A Hidden Sakura Spot in Fukushima Prefecture
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.
As you see, this was at night. It was quite dark, but there were already two photographers when I arrived here.
It was before dawn. Everything looked blue at this moment.
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.
The sun totally appeared! There still remained some 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.
If you get interested in the Weeping Sakura tree of Hanazono, please visit Tanagura Town in the midst of April next year. Thanks.
