A geisha under a cherry tree during sakura season in Tokyo, Japan

Japan during the height of spring is a place without rival, cherry blossoms in full bloom everywhere one lays eyes. I happened to be strolling along in a secluded area of an immense park in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district when chancing upon this scene. She was sitting there with a determined focus and poise, on fallen petals under a strikingly overarching cherry tree. An intrusion on something special, yet private, it felt like.. my automatic reaction then to quickly frame the shot with my diminutive pocket cam and leave her be.. to her corner of this serene world of the sakura, walking away from the sort of moment that remains forever etched in your memories.
