Last Hanami of the Year

Yaezakura (eight-layer sakura) bloom later than your typical sakura, but I was surprised to find one still in its full-blooming glory at Kiyosumi Garden.

And really, there was only one. The tree on the right was showing a bit too much leaf.

In this photo it looks like a giant pink afro, but the real thing was quite majestic.

Time traveler on the right.

The iris japonica were also in full bloom.

The main garden, which I posted photos of before.

But that was before the earthquake.

Until next time.
