Kitanomaru park near the palace

Picnic at Kinuta park

Kinuta park

Cherry tree
It's cherry blossom time in Tokyo!  The trees were at full bloom this weekend and I took advantage of it to have a cherry blossom viewing birthday party picnic.  I had the picnic on Sunday but it was actually pretty chilly and windy... then today the weather was perfect!  It got into the 70s with just a light breeze, it was amazing!  So I went around with a couple friends and we went to a couple different parks to check out the cherry blossoms.  We went to Shinjuku Gyoen and then to Kitanomaru park, which is near the Imperial Palace so you can see the moat lined with cherry trees.  We wanted to go into the imperial gardens, but it turns out they're closed on Monday.  Still, it was a such a nice day!
