Where Cherry Blossom Petals Go

(In front of Gakushuin Women's College.)

What looked like this only last week...

...soon turns into hazakura (sakura with leaves, ha, showing)...

...and we see very clearly where petals used to be.

Only the stamen are left behind.

Where do all the petals go?

This is Kanda River, positively marbled with petals even though this was taken almost 2 kilometers away from the thick of sakura trees near Edogawabashi Station.

Making everyone feel one last twinge of sadness as they go.
