Night Viewing at Harimazaka

Visited Harimazaka again this year to see the night blossoms. Unfortunately, I went around 18:30, and the night sky made my photos turn out grainy.

Unlike other spots that are famed for their nighttime cherry blossom viewing, Harimazaka doesn't employ strategic lighting. The street is lit by mere streetlamps.

They light the flowers up very nicely, though.

Unlike last year, the area wasn't packed with visitors, although I remember it being a lot colder.

Lantern lights reflected onto the little man-made river they have running alongside the path. It was drained after the 2011 earthquake, so I've never seen it in action.
