Is time for Cherry Blossom background!
Since I’m looking for nice Cherry Blossom picture,
then let’s talk ‘bout Cherry Blossom.
I’ve never been to Japan,
but I know Japan quite well from watching anime
since I was …5 I guess…hm…I can’t remember.
My parents always bought me little present if they went over sea to Japan.
I have a few Sakura picture in my comp,
took by my parent few years ago when they went to Tokyo.
There are so many kinds of Cherry Blossom trees but among all of them,
but I think Weeping Cherry Trees is the most beautiful~
Weeping branches with full blooming bright pink flowers.
Just imagine, when the wind blows, petals flow in the air like snow fall~
I found few pretty picture from some Japanese sites & blogs~
most of the picture was took at Tokyo’s Rikugien Kouen(六艺園).
I toned up the color because some of the picture was a bit dark.
My mom told me,
looking at all those blooming Sakuras give her a feelings of “maboroshi”.
[幻 – illusion in Japanese, means unreal.]
That really reminds me all of the Japanese horror stories I’ve read in this long time.
(Currently reading Miyabe Miyuki’s “Tengu Kaze”.XD)
There were lots of stories & old legend about cherry blossom trees,
especially stories ‘bout “Kami Kakushi”~
[神隠し– means hidden by god.]
Sprite kidnapping kids and beautiful girls during cherry blossom full bloom season…
Freaky & mysterious huh?
Whatever, I’ll go experience it with my own eyes one day~^^
