Tokushima Central Park in the Spring!
Located just minutes from where I live is the Tokushima Central Park. Designed by Seiroku Honda and Takanori Hongo, the park was opened in 1906 and is widely recognized as Japan’s second ever western-style park. The true beauty of the park comes to life in the spring as the cherry blossoms bloom and the residence of Tokushima come out to celebrate the flower referred to as sakura by the Japanese. Although I’ve been to Tokushima Central Park many times for the occasional morning jog and written about the yearly Cherry Blossom picnic hanami parties, I can’t recall ever taking the time to appreciate the full beauty of the park – something I recently tried to do and wanted to share through these pictures I took this season. Enjoy!
