If you plan to visit Koishikawa Botanical Gardens for hanami, you may take the Metro to Myogadani station, and walk along this long pedestrian alley, starting on Kasuga Dori. The alley is filled with three dense lines of large beautiful sakura trees, decorated with pink lanterns. The walk is quite impressive. In the evening the lanterns are lit, making the view even more spectacular.
Pro Photo Tip
Long perspectives are usually very nicely rendered with long focal lenses… a 70-200mm will be fine. A good 135mm opened wide will make dreamy shots with a marvellous white bokeh (pink spots in the evening). Do not hesitate to use your lenses at their widest aperture to play on the depth of field for some nice cotton-effect.
