Cherry blossoms were in full bloom.

I went to Katsushika Hachimangu shrine and Mama river to see cherry blossoms this year, too !

After that I went to Mama river. It took further 15 minutes walk from the shrine. Onigoe station might be closer.

Though the river is under repair, still it was beautiful.

Certainly there’re many popular viewing cherry blossoms spots like Chidorigafuchi moat and Yasukuni shhrine, but I love such cherry blossoms making our daily life brilliant 🙂
