Gion Shidare sakura


I reached the Gion Shidare Sakura (big weeping cherry tree) in Maruyama Park, Kyoto, before the lights went up. Unfortunately, it was cloudy with occasional showers.


When it started to get a little dark, the lights started to turn on. The pink colour of the Gion Shidare Sakura is a complete change from the brightly lit blossoms. As the night falls a little later, the beauty of the cherry blossoms will deepen.
