東京の桜の名所、千鳥ヶ淵は実は仕事場から歩いて15分のところにある。でも、人混みが嫌いなのと、多くの人が撮った写真を見てお腹いっぱいなのとで、今まで避けてきた。

しかし今日、仕事で機材を持ってきていたのと、昼食時に同僚が「千鳥ヶ淵のライトアップされた桜がきれいで毎年行く」という話を聞いて、思い立って向かってみた。

For those of you who might not know Chidorigafuchi, it is one of the most popular cherry blossoms viewing spots in Tokyo. Actually, it is about 15-minute walk from my workplace.

I've never tried Chidorigafuchi because I'm not interested in such a crowded place, but today, one of my colleague told me that the cherry blossoms there in the evening were so beautiful that she had been there every year. So I changed my mind and tried to see it myself partly. Another reason I decided to do so is because I had a DSLR with me today. I used it for my job.


でも、この人混みなので前を素通りしてUターン。きっとあの向こうにお堀とライトアップされた桜が見えるんだろうな。どうしても見たい人はグーグルで画像検索していただきたい。僕はここまでたどり着いたときに、東京夜間写真部に出店されていた千鳥ヶ淵の夜景写真を脳内スイッチオンにして想像して、今日、見たことにした。きっと同じ景色に違いない。

だから、ここで紹介している写真は靖国通り沿いの風景。でも、こういう普通の桜並木のほうが撮っていて楽しい。人と違うのがいい。

So I went there and saw the place ... packed with people ... from across the street. I hated to join the line that looked endless. Just imagine the cherry blossoms in full bloom lining the moat. The view must be spectacular. If you are really want to see the view, Google it.

As for me, I saw the same view through one of my friends' photo at the group exhibition every day :) So I was able to imagine clearly what it looked like. I didn't have to be in that crowd.

So the photos here were taken all along the Yasukuni Street to and from Chidorigafuchi. You know what, I prefer these cherry blossoms along the street :)
