Photos of Cherry Blossoms Turning Ponds Pink in Japan



When spring rolls around in Japan, cherry blossoms (known as “sakura”) cause an explosion of bright pink colors in the natural landscapes. Photographer Danilo Dungo took his camera to various parks and captured gorgeous photos of the blossoms flooding the waters.

Inokashira Park in Western Tokyo is particularly famous for its cherry trees that bloom, fall, and turn the waters pink.
