Weeping Cherry BLOSSOMS. 六義園の枝垂れ桜。

Weeping cherry blossoms are in full bloom at Tokyo metropolitan garden named Rikugien.

It takes only 5 minutes from our house to go to this garden by walking.

Magnolia blossoms are in full bloom too.

There are small falls in this garden.

If you see the falls from this house.

You would feel the falls look like a painting.

Thanks for visiting this post.

We go to a three day trip from tomorrow.
