When the cherry blossoms are in bloom, the Meguro River completely changes its appearance. Normally, the Meguro River is an uninteresting river flowing through the city, but this time of year it suddenly attracts a lot of attention. There are cherry blossom trees planted along the river, and when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, many people come along the Meguro River. It's as if the usually unassuming high school students are only in the limelight during the annual school festival.

Thinking it would be too crowded in the afternoon, I came to the river early in the morning. There were only a few people who seemed to live nearby, strolling peacefully. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom regardless of the presence of people, so my plan was a success.

It was beautiful to see the cherry blossoms blooming all along the river. While most people think of cherry blossom viewing from below, I personally love the bridge at the Meguro Community Center, where you can see the cherry blossoms from below.

While I was standing on the bridge looking at the cherry blossoms, I saw a young woman's figure behind the flowers. The woman seemed to be taking a walk under the cherry blossoms, immersed in music. It seemed to be a much more elegant way to spend time than just holding the lens in a single-minded way.
