Sakura and a newly married couple in AprilーNara,Japan

Hello! How are you these days?
Cherry blossoms are in their full in Japan now.
They are at their best now.(in the middle of April)
Cherry blossoms along a river.

They are bride and groom. Today they hold wedding ceremony at Kasuga-Taisha shrine.
They are enjoying strolling the park,riding in a ricksha.
Please look at the bride,dressed in pure white,
this is Japanese-style bride,called "Shiro-muku".
This fashion is traditional Japanese bride and groom.
Wishing them much happiness.


  1. How nice! It's a pity the bride we saw in Kasuga-taisha was not wearing this kind of costume but her kimono was wonderful anyway.

  2. @Traveling Hawk,
    Thank you,Traveling Hawk!
    Yeah,if only you had seen it on April 15!
    Yes,this is Tsuno-kakushi,traditional Japanese bride's style,which I wanted to show you.
