Walk along Lake Biwa canal

My little web space has officially turned into a flower photography blog !

It’s probably due to the fact that a lot of my downtime lately has been devoted to go and smell the roses flowers, quite literally ! The cherry blossoms season is now mostly over, but I can happily say that I really enjoyed it this year. These wanderings also gave me a chance to discover a few places in Kyoto I had never walked, which is always nice.

After a few busy weeks at work, I needed to breeze some fresh air and decided to walk along the Lake Biwa canal. This aqueduct was built at the end of the 19th century, between Lake Biwa – the largest lake in Japan- and the city of Kyoto, to transport water, merchandises and people as well as to generate electricity.

Late March through mid-April, the cherry trees that border this canal are all in different states of blossom, which really makes for a dreamy walk. The day I went, the  weather was cloudy and the sky turned grayer and grayer as I was progressing, still it was so beautiful ! (And it only started to rain once I decided to put my camera back in my bag, which was just perfect !)

Spring has arrived !

Cherry trees are near full bloom, making any place they grow on such a magical one.

I thought I’d go for a picnic under these pink skies, but the rain came, soaking the frail petals and the ground. So, an indoor week end it was, very soft and pleasant too, with just the thought of the cherry trees magic !

The pictures are from a couple of years back (and are scans of non-digital photos, so the image is not the clearest one, but…hope you can still enjoy it :))
