Figure Beyond The Cherry Tree

Figure walking behind lantern

The cherry blossoms were blooming

Shot at Tosho-Gu, a Shinto shrine in Ueno, Tokyo.

The approach of the Shinto shrine which enshrined Tokugawa Ieyasu, a founder of the Tokugawa shogunate, was flanked by many big copper lanterns. They were taller than I and dedicated by feudal lords from all over Japan. The decoration was also luxury. Besides, it was a season of cherry blossom. The flowers bloomed beside the lanterns.

When I stood beside a lantern, I could see a figure walking on the other side of the cherry blossoms.
