“C’est le temps que tu a perdu pour ta rose qui fait ta rose si importante.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This was my favourite building at the Edo Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum… The house of Kunio Mayekawa, one of the pioneers of modern Japanese architecture. Having been built in 1940’s wartime Japan, its inclusion at this museum was unexpected. However, it was one of the most beautiful and comfortable spaces I have ever had the pleasure to experience. #kuniomayekawa #japanesearchitecture #edotokyoopenairarchitecturalmuseum
Meguro River is lined with over 800 cherry blossom trees. The part closest to Nakameguro station is the most popular place to visit during hanami season. The river is narrow and the branches of the trees on either side reach out toward each other, creating a canopy of blossoms so magical, you cannot believe it is real. What’s more, the depth is just breathtaking - as you stand on any of the bridges in this area, you can see endless planes of branches and blossoms, creating a multilayered net of pink-tinted petals that seems to retreat into infinity.
Meguro river. The wonderful thing about hanami at night is that there are much fewer people and you can wander at your leisure… Just me and the blossoms tonight. #cherryblossoms #nakameguro #whyilovejapan #meguroriver
