Hanami in Ueno Park

Hanami in ueno park Yesterday, I went to ueno park.
Cherry blossoms was not in full bloom yet.
But the park was very crowded with hanami visitors.
Hanami means cherry blossoms viewing.

My sister is so sad that they're missing the cherry blossoms this year. They'll be here for one more week and will probably be too late to see any.

They're gorgeous!

It's a great idea to celebrate blossoms this way with music and drinks. It's like a celebration of emerging life itself really. I looked up hanami on wikipedia and it was quite interesting to find out some more about this old tradition. In answer to your question, I'm not really a ledzep fan, but of course they did some pretty great stuff.
