Yokohama is a very astonishing city with endless possibility. That’s why I always make sure to check the Yokohama City’s website for latest news and events. From there, I found out that the their notable Sankeien Garden was open for night cherry blossoms viewing until 8 p.m. due to season as opposed to its regular closing time of 5 p.m.
Inside, I was astounded when I saw bunch of photographers with tripods lined up beside the lake. I was curious as the sun was still up at that point. Looking closer, I realized that they were saving their spots for later’s low light shooting.
Walking further, I met a nice couple who asked me to take their photos with the cherry blossoms, until then, they would always thanked me whenever we bump into each other.
This photo was taken by a fellow visitor. He-she’s a very cheerful tranny by the way. It happened when I offered to take her photo as she looked struggling with her camera timer and tripod to take photo of herself. From there, she offered to take my photos too and took several photos of me like a mini photoshoot. I will not deny, she has the good eye for photography!

Sankeien Garden is a huge garden and there were even small hiking trails inside. Unfortunately, I arrived there at 4:30 p.m. and hiking trails were already closed for safety reasons. Nevertheless, just walking around the garden was already considered a hike like I said it’s HUGE.
My short solo trip to this beautiful garden with random people encounter was fun, but not as fun when you’re with someone else. I missed my hubby, it was already getting late and I was getting hungry. I was time to go home.
