Nighttime cherry-blossom viewing

Japan is in the midst of cherry-blossom viewing season. There are scores of parks, gardens, and even tree-lined streets that draw large crowds when the cherry trees are in full bloom.

One such garden is Rokugien, where some of the magnificient trees are illuminated at night, like the drooping cherry tree in the photo below.
