Cherry Blossoms in Takaoka

Fortunately further north in Japan the cherries blossom later so I caught them again in Takaoka. It is on the west coast of Honshu, near the Japanese Alps and on the Sea of Japan. A very Japanese city šŸ˜‰

The castle was destroyed for political reasons, but they kept the moat and gardens.


How to improve on pink cherry blossoms? Perhaps a red bridge and a few sculptures?

Plant another variety..


Different light..

Have a festival.


And you’re there, the way out..
