There are many cherry trees planted in Shinjuku Gyoen Park, and many people come to see them during the cherry blossom viewing season. However, it was still February when I took this photo. The Someiyoshino cherry trees were not in bloom yet. Instead, the winter cherry trees were in full bloom in this park. In addition to Someiyoshino, there are also Kanzakura (winter cherry blossoms) planted here.

When I came to the winter cherry blossoms, I found that the flowers were in full bloom, even though there were no people spreading out plastic sheets for flower viewing. The stamens were protruding strongly from the flowers. Regardless of whether people are watching or not, when the time comes, the flowers will naturally bloom. The flower blooms not for the sake of humans, but for its own sake. Perhaps it is like women's makeup.
