SAKURA Reflection Tokyo



The cherry blossoms (Sakura) are scattered very early about 1 week.
The climate change of the spring hastens it still more.

Because changes of the weather are intense, the photography chances are several hours every year.


The cherry blossoms petals paint the surface of the water in pink.

March 27 is a day of the cherry tree.




Building materials trees were carried on this waterway in Edo era (1603-1868).
Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) pictured the state of here in "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo".

The title is "
Fukagawa, Kiba".
Here is a downtown area of Tokyo, Kiba.


And other works, "oohashi atakeno yuudachi" and "kameido umeyaho".
These works are known for what was copied by Gogh.




Utagawa Hiroshige was also referred to as "Andō Hiroshige".
You may have watched "
The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō".
This picture is one of the famousness "
Shōno-juku (no.45)" most in that.


The scenery is very different from "
Ukiyo-e".
However, the flow of the water is the still same slowly, calmly...


Utagawa Hiroshige might have seen these cherry blossoms, too.

  24. Es fascinante la utilización de los cerezos como árbol ornamental para alineaciones en las calles, sobre todo en una ciudad como Tokio. Estos árboles nos muestran el paso de las estaciones del año.

    Un cordial saludo.
