Floating in cloud of powder pink and being captivated by the sheer grandeur of something so simplistic yet utterly beautiful-- it's kinda like falling in love. Love is simple, love is kind, it's people that make it complicated. Being in Japan never felt more real until I stepped foot into the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, where I was left speechless with the copious amounts of sakura varieties. I was in time for the late blooming types, which are so spectacular that I had to take photos with all of them. On the premises is an English garden, a French garden, a greenhouse and traditional Japanese garden; so you can just imagine how massive this Garden is...58.3 hectares to be precise. It is one of the oldest gardens in Tokyo as it was established during the Edo period in 1772. Years later it was converted into an Imperial garden used for entertainment and leisure purposes for guests, and even now it is used for that same purpose.
My thoughts flowed out of mind like icing through a piping bag, so smooth and sweet. I couldn't help but think about being in such a romantic surrounding like this garden and thinking of life and all it's treasures. Traveling to Japan alone was a big step and I'm still surprised at the amount of people who admire my bravery for taking a leap like this. I don't see it as bravery, it's a life changing event that everyone should try and least once.
Isolating your mind and heart is a necessity for a person of today's society, so we won't forget about what is truly important to us. It keeps us grounded and focused without taking the little things for granted, as you'll appreciate each tiny memory and hold it close to you like a childhood toy.
