in nearby park from Dortmund, there was this small cultural festival called kirschbluetenfest cherry blossom festival in english. As part of the japanese culture, they always celebrated cherry blossom/sakura during the early April and to honour this tradition, they will created sakura festival here in Dortmund.
thanks God that day the sun smiling so bright! seeing so many beautiful sakura tree, basicly it was dream comes true!
they also planned 200 new cherry blossom tree! i could not imagine, maybe in the next 5 year the park will be covered by pink petals!
in the entire park they also had a booth to introduced japan culture to the locals, such as go (traditional board game), calligrafy, and also wishing tree.
there is also a cultural show like taiko, ikebana, and kimono show, but unfortunately i was too late to come T_T sigh
i will definitely come again next year!
and a LOL moment, when i saw this street, my mind just go direct to nami island LOL this line of tree really are similiar with the tree from Winter sonata!
For someone who spend 28 year in tropical land, spring is something that I could never experienced before. I had experienced winter and fall before during my holiday. In my case, i never ever will be a fan of snow or winter. I hate cold. As for fall, it is indeed such a beauty, but spring is the winner. Spring is officially my favorite season of the year!
All the flowers are totally mesmerizing! But the one that really stole my heart is this pink small flower. SAKURA!
I totally adore Sakura since I was small. Reading all those manga from Japan, they always mention about how beautiful this small flower. It was quite hard for me to imagine how could one big tree had no leave and instead covered by small pink flower. But after witnessing it by my own eyes, i totally understand why so many people fall in love with sakura.
Near where I live, there was this street, and the whole street had a long array of sakura tree! OMG! The first time I saw it, I scream out loud, screaming from the top of my lung “SAKURAAAA!!!!”
I had a pink carpet beneath my foot!
totally envy the owner of this houses, i could not imagine the joy of gazing on the beauty of sakura direct from your window every day!
This spring was totally dream comes true for tropical child who totally love manga and anime like me. Everything was so pink and dreamy!
The only sad thing was, it only last for 2 weeks T_T after that it turn into normal tree sigh…. Need to wait for another 1 year to enjoy this magnificent view
