It’s a great time to be in Japan right now with the annual blooming of the Cherry Blossom, or Sakura, transforming Japan into a wonderland of sort with pink blooms everywhere. Yasunori Iwamoto, a Tokyo based film maker took to Tokyo with a camera enabled drone to capture some stunning footage of the sakura doing their natural thing. Arguable one of the more popular spots for sakura viewing is the Megurogawa River. These viewing parties are called hanami.
There’s a spot that goes on for a little over 4km and is host to no less than 800 trees in full bloom. In any case, here’s the drone footage which shows off the absolute beauty and majesty of this gorgeous time in Japan.
