Naive yet Macabre


Recently the sakura have come into full bloom, so today I went out to go take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.
最近、桜が咲いたので、
出かけて、写真を撮ってみたり、雰囲気を楽しんだり等しました。

For the past several years I have always gone to Ueno park for cherry blossom viewing, but I'm starting to feel like the charm of that is wearing off. Many people have told me to try Yoyogi park, but from what I hear thats also extremely crowded. However, I was actually about to go there when suddenly I had a better idea!!
先年、花見のために上野公園に行ったが、私は、ちょっと芸のなくなった。今回、他の所に行きたくて、多くの人は「代々木公園が素敵だ!」と言っているが、ちょっと込んでいるでしょうかなあ。しかしながら、代々木公園に行くところで、もっと良いアイデアがあった!!

Aoyama Cemetery!!
青山霊園!!

Those who know me well are probably aware of how much I love Aoyama cemetery and that I've gone many times in the past. I guess about a year or two ago I was walking through the cemetery at night and I noticed all the Sakura in bloom. I remember thinking that its probably extremely beautiful during the day, so in the end I decided to go to Aoyama cemetery instead of Yoyogi park this time.
私がよく分かる人々はこれがもう分かるんですが、青山霊園が大好きで、数回通ったことがある。
多分1〜2年前に夜の中でここに散歩するして、美しい夜桜を気づいた。その時から日中で本当に訪ねたいと思う。
だから、今日は代々木公園ではなくて、青山霊園に来た。

I took a ton of pictures, but I'll try to sift through them and post the best ones here.
写真が多くて、ここにマイフェイバリットのを付いてみる。

By the way, I also found oranges in the cemetery...
ところで、霊園の中にオレンジを見つけた…



They were all down a trail too...
それも道の下にもある…



Why oranges!?
I don't think theres any kind of purpose for them, but there they are...
なんでオレンジ!?
意思ではないと思うが、やっぱりオレンジがある…

Lastly I tried to take a picture of myself because I really wanted to show what I was wearing, but it turned out too difficult to do by myself. LOL
最後は自分の写真。実は、今日のファッションの写真を撮ってみたが、1人で難しすぎた。(笑)



There you have it anyway.
I was wearing leggings which ironically had a cemetery printed on them. It wasn't really my first intention to come here, but maybe it was in my subconscience all along??
兎に角、レギンスを履いて、霊園のプリントを付いたが、奇縁だった。
初めは霊園に行くのが腹積りではないんですが、出かけた前に潜在意識に入っただろうかしら??

I hope you all enjoyed the pictures! I'm glad I picked this place because it was extremely beautiful in person! As you an probably tell I spent most of my day there, but it was a day well spent. (*^▽^)/
この写真を楽しんでほしいね!この所がものすごく美しいので、とっても嬉しいです!一日中こんなかんじで過ごしたが、本当に素晴らしかった!(*^▽^)/
