Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Queen of sakura

  • April 10-2010

I was invited the hanami party at Maruyama park, in the eastern side of Gion, yesterday.
This is the most popular park where Japanese people held the hanami party.
I don’t like this place very much because it’s too crowded and too touristy.
And one more reason I have is that I don’t want to see the weak queen of sakura, photo above.
When I saw her yesterday, it looked really..really sad.
She used to be a glorious queen when I was a collage student.
Of course she has been aged, but I don’t think it is only a reason that she has declined.
Waao.. look at her shape at night!
She is still gorgeous.
I realized that she has been living for human beings.
People enjoy a party under the queen.
Does she feel her life was happy or not?
I imagine she feels so sleepy at night time.
