"SAKURA" - In Himeji Castle (Edited)

This week the weather is very fine, and so we went to see "SAKURA" (Cherry Blossoms) in the world heritage Himeji Castle.

Here are the photos of the way around the castle...
There are some trails and these area retains something of the flavor of the old working class section very much, and I love them.









Here is one of stone monument of Himeji Castle.




This photo is beautiful, isn't it?!
We can see the caslte from our house (mum's house), so for us it's very natural thing that the castle is there, but every year when this season came, I always think this castle is the best in so many SAKURA!




I like this shot (below)! Good shot, isn't this?!







This is like a post card!
I will print this out on the photo paper later by new printer! And see how it will be, if it's so good, I will use them as a post card! :D




Please look at these beautiful and pretty flowers "SAKURA" for a while...






















People enjoying the cherry blossoms... It is called "Hanami"
Most of local people enjoy their meal "Bento" etc.. (beer, drinks, etc... some are doing sports, it's like picnic) under the trees.




Me in front of the Castle.
Yesterday was a fine day, so I was a bit vigour!




Sweetie and I. Sweetie didn't stop moving at all, so we couldn't take nice photos of him at all, shame!! (Actually he was sleepy!!)




I hope people enjoy my photos of "SAKURA" and "Himeji Caslte" very much!
You can compare the scene of the Castle from this post, photos was taken in last November.




Thanks for visiting!
Bye bye from Sweetie + Yuko (@_@)v

P.S. Unfortunately from the next year, the big repair for the castle will be started, so you won't be able to see such scenes for few years...

Thank you for sharing these lovely photos Yuko. The castle is gorgeous!

Cherry blossoms are so beautiful! I think they look like delicate pink lace. When I lived near Washington, DC I used to drive there just to see the cherry blossoms in the spring. I miss doing that.
