Photo Journal: Bustling bloom

(Mainichi/Naoki Watanabe)

Crowds of people walk beneath blooming Somei Yoshino cherry trees at Ueno Park in Tokyo's Taito Ward, on March 28, 2019. Visitors flocked to the area, preparing for cherry blossom viewing parties and snapping photos of the pastel pink flowers with their smartphones. In recent years, the park has received over 3 million visitors during the cherry blossom season, including many non-Japanese as the number of inbound tourists has been increasing.
