Three-Story Pagoda from Kankatei Arbor of Sankeien garden
I went to Sankeien Garden at 7 April 2017 to see illuminated cherry blossoms.
Sankeien is a traditional and typical Japanese-style garden in southern part of Yokohama city.
It is one of the popular cherry blossom viewing place in Yokohama.
Especially the scenery of lightened up up three-story pagoda and cherry blossoms are famous.
This illumination event is taken place from the end of March to beginning of April every year when the cherry blossoms are fully bloomed.

So many people took pictures at here, so it was hard to find the nice place to shoot picture.

The reflection on the water was awesome.

All of the pictures were taken by iPhone.
