Hidden photographic sakura spots (Tokyo) 2013/2/3 23:19
Dear Tokyonites.

I am about to go on my second cherry blossom photo trip to Tokyo. I have been there once before, and three times in Kyoto.

I know all about the most popular spots for cherry blossom photography in Tokyo, but are there any hidden gems that I should be aware of?

Obviously, the flower itself looks the same everywhere, but the key ingredient to a good photo all about the surroundings and backgrounds! Please let me know if you know any "secret / hidden" cherry blossom spot in Tokyo that is great for photography. :)

Shrines, temples, train crossings, back alleys, e.t.c.. Just any nice location with one or many cherry trees.

Big thanks!

I actually like the cemetary north and west of Ueno Park. It is well kept up cemetary, and the cherry blossums add a life/death aspect to the photo.

Since you haven't listed the places you know, one can only speculate about the places you don't know.

Perhaps Sarue Onishi park
