Konnichiwa Nobu-san!

Thanks a lot for your comment on my blog.
Yes, my hometown Bad Mergentheim has a sister-city / twinning arrangement of towns with the Japanese city of Fuefuki (笛吹市), located in Yamanashi.
And that's obviously the reason why my hometown has a cherry tree with a (Japanese) stone latern next to it in its spa gardens.

But the laterns you shot several photos of are much more beautiful!

I like the contrast between those strong, heavy and eternal stone lanterns, and the ephemeral silky lightness of the petals...Your country offers so much poetry!

Ueno Park is one of the best parks to see ohanami in Tokyo?

Hello. This forever will be part of my memory. The Ueno Park is where we're at during March 11 earthquake. A day after we arrived in Tokyo for holiday. My prayers to your beautiful country and your countrymen. You can visit my blog to follow my journal regarding our Tokyo experience at http://arvtar.blogspot.com/
