The Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) are nearly in full bloom at the end of March and beginning of April in Tokyo, Japan. Some interesting facts: there are 305 different varieties of ornamental sakura trees in Japan and they are different from the fruit-bearing cherry trees. This white variety is called Somei Yoshino and is the most popular variety in Japan. This shot is a joiner made up of about 3 images I shot specifically to turn into this panorama. Nikon D200, AF-S Nikkor 12-24mm f/4
