There are many places we can enjoy cherry blossoms in Kyoto.
Maruyama Park, located at the foot of eastern mountins of Kyoto and very near Gion which is the most famous area with geisha culture, is one of the most popular places.
Wednesday 6th of april was the perfect weather.
I went out with my friends, and took some pictures.
I was so happy to see many foreigners were also enjoying lovely atmosphere. Only 3 weeks after the earthquake and following incidents they are coming back !
It must be the most encouraging for those who were damaged and lost everything : loved one, houses, all properties…
I am sure they can feel not being deserted by the people of the world.
