Shakujigawa Sakura at Sunset

Nearly in full bloom at Itabashi River: Beautiful!

By Andre Moreira    - 1 min read

Today I went for a walk along the Shakujigawa River in Itabashi, the place where I live.

I have always loved this river for its great atmosphere during any season, but when it comes to cherry blossoms, it's just perfect! There is still a few more days until they are in full bloom, but they are already great! Some people were enjoying them with their families and friends, making little parties by the river.

And what better time of the day to shoot them than at sunset? And what great weather it was!

Have a look at my other photo story about Akabane Cherry Blossoms here!

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
