Sakura viewing at Nagatoro
The weather was very weird here in Tokyo. Last week we had the first snow in November, which is really rare. The last snow in November was like… 54 years ago. Global warming is real, people. Wake up.
Work has not been very well too and it makes me feel gloomy recently. Probably it’s the weather, probably winters is coming, or whatever. People said human tends depressed more during the winter. Well, I don’t know.
I really miss the flowers (and sun!). Can spring come faster, please? 😀
Went to Nagatoro, Saitama earlier this year. The sakura there was really pretty! And you know what’s the best part?
There were not as crowded as here in Tokyo!
I’m going to share some photos here.
Nagatoro located around 2,5 hours by train from Tokyo. Me and some friends went there from Ikebukuro -> Seibu Chichibu station –> Nagatoro Station. I don’t remember the price, but I’m sure if you check it online, you’ll find it.
Beside the sakura, there’s so much activities you can do there, like rafting, river boating, paragliding, and you can see the Paleo Locomotive there. (I think it’s still operating).
For us, our main goal is to see the Sakura. Here are the photo taken in Nagatoro. (You can click it and zoom it for more details!)
I went there with Marco and Willy (those talented photographers) and cutie pie Felicia.
And we got the chance to play with dandelion too.
I had bunch of photos… sorry, this post will contain tons of photos.
Here’s the river for the river boating. The valley is called Iwadatami and the fall foliage in this area is also really pretty
From Iwadatami, we walked along the rail track for the locomotive. I really hope that I can catch the glimpse of the locomotive, but we’re a bit unlucky.
Nonetheless, the view is still amazing.
Since we did not get to see the locomotive, we decided just to follow the railway. I think we walked for 4km or so. The view alongside the railway was mesmerising and there were barely any people there. We can take photo leisurely.
Last but not least. Willy took some pictures of me and I think his photographs are really pretty. He’s based in Tokyo, so if any of you need some photographers, I can refer you to him.
