Day 141- Cherry Blossoms

Hagi was once a castle town, unfortunately now only left with its ornate ruins. The grounds are lit up spectacularity once a year by cherry blossoms, gleaming with pink. I cycled down to take a few pictures.

I particularly like the first shot- quintessentially Japanese with cherry blossom and a grad Tori gate, all framing a lone cyclist.

    The first one is on my wall already. Metaphorically obviously, but it will be when you give me the originals. I may have to decorate my house with these. Okay?
