After my japanese colleagues and I were always talking about that “sakura” has bloomed already, I thought of visiting Mito, a nearby city to where I lived in, that coming Sunday (April 10, 2011). Though I can also see cherry blossoms anywhere in the city where I lived in, I also planned to see a special event in that city. After arriving at the event place, I saw a lot of cherry blossom trees. I took a lot of photos almost from every single tree but mostly, I focused more on taking closer shots.
