Photographer Captures Cherry Blossom Path “Suddenly Appearing” In The Middle Of Tokyo

The end of March and beginning of April was one of the most eventful few days in recent memory here in the Tokyo area. Not only was April 1st the beginning of a new fiscal year and a new school year (not to mention April Fool’s Day), it was also the day that the government announced the name of its new era, the Reiwa Era.

The period also marked the peak of the cherry blossom viewing season, which arrived earlier than usual this year.

Rei Hanada, an advertising planner for Dentsu Inc. who enjoys drone photography on the side, wasn’t going to let the opportunity pass. This time, he chose the Meguro River, famous this time of year for its walkways covered by the gorgeous cherry trees planted along its banks. While many photographers enjoy capturing those beautiful pink blossoms from ground-level, the view of Meguro River from high above is still a relatively uncommon sight.
