Japanese cherry tree flower (sakura) viewing in Yokohama

video

Time for Japanese cherry tree blooming in Japan. People come outside to see sakura flowers, take photos and have drink or food under trees. These moments I captured in Yokohama. You will see group of dancers performing traditional dance.

It is also election time, some people are campaigning with banners and loud speakers.

Access:
Take local Keikyu line from Yokohama station and get down at Hinodecho or Koganecho station, which is second and third stop from Yokohama station. Sakuras are all around.

Walk this road after getting out of Hinodecho station (opens new window and need to wait some time for street view).
