TRAVEL / Sakura Rain

I may love dark things: Horror films, Rei Kawakubo, black leather jackets, Stephen King novels but when I saw a cherry blossom tree for the first time, I  felt awash with lightness. I was transported to the time when I was 12 , an obsessed anime fan who dreams of being Sailormoon.  It was a gray day with the usual incessant rain however, the richness of the Sakura flower radiated throughout the park.  No wonder thousands of tourists fly to Tokyo just to experience this fascinating sight. Imagine it was a sunny day. How lovely would it stand against the blue sky. But I will take what I can and appreciate it against the chilly sullen clouds. Sunny or Rainy, I can say that I have already seen a Sakura tree.
