The Prettiest Magnolia Tree in the World (at Shinjuku Gyoen)

The prettiest magnolia tree in the world, in full bloom at Shinjuku Gyoen Park about a week ago. Is it not as impressive as a sakura (cherry blossom) tree at its height?

The sight of all the different layers of branches and flowers spread out under the clear sky was honestly astounding. I'll be honest, though: its prettiness is mostly due to its size.

The area surrounding the tree was littered with fallen white petals, but flowers still appeared abundant on the branches.
