The Sakura in Shinjuku Gyoen

My love for this gorgeous park just grows and grows.

I heard that Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden was in full bloom
and couldn't pass up the chance of seeing it all myself :)

Shinjuku Gyoen has over 1,300 cherry trees within the park.
About 420 trees are the ever popular Somei Yoshino.

But what's so great about this place is that
they have SO MANY different types of cherry trees.

You can enjoy an array of colors and shapes.

And the greatest thing about it is
you can enjoy the cherry blossoms for a longer time
because they all reach full bloom at different times...YAY!!!

And tell me if this beautiful reflection on the lake
doesn't make you want to run to Shinjuku Gyoen right now? ;D
