Cherry Blossoms Light Up (Kansai, Japan Trip 2012, Day 8)

When people talked about hanami (cherry blossoms viewing), most people will paint a picture of pink blossoms against a bright blue sky. Do you know that there is viewing of cherry blosooms at night in Japan?

In fact, there is a sense of mysterious beauty when the cherry blossoms are viewed at night. The lights that are shone onto the flowers make the colours even more intense. My description here did no justice to the beautiful flowers, so I shall let the photos do the job.
