Hanami – Meguro

DSC04565

EN: The picture above represents one of my first moments in Japan with my camera. If you have a look at my first post from Japan (except the ones with the pictures taken by my phone inside of the Narita Express), you can see this wooden mill on one of the photos – that was approximately 2 years ago. In that time my 3-months long holiday in Japan started and I used to live in a house in Musashi-Koyama area, very close to Meguro. And because of that I knew that Meguro river and its hanami festival are one of the must-see places in this time of the year, therefore I rode my bike over there. I actually visited the house I used to live in, just to have a look if it still stands (it was pretty old aready in that time and older buildings do usually get demolished when they reach certain age over here). So these are the pictures taken in Meguro area, mostly on one of the river banks, plus there are few photos from the Rinshi no Mori Park in Musashi-Koyama area. The weather was not very pleasant (but still better than the actual forecast), it was windy, which can annoy pretty much any person on the bike, but these places were definitely worth a visit.

SK:Prvá fotka vyššie predstavuje môj prvý moment s DSLR fotoaparátom v Japonsku. Ak si prezriete tento post spred dvoch rokov, zistíte, že rovnaký drevený mlyn je na jednej z tamojších fotiek – je tomu tak preto, lebo to bolo počas mojej trojmesačnej dovolenky v Japonsku, ktorú som podstúpil pred dvomi rokmi, prvé miesto, ktoré som navštívil z môjho neďalekého prenajatého domu. Mlyn a park Rinshi no Mori sa nachádzajú v mestskej časti Meguro, ktorá je známa hlavne svojím hanami festivalom konajúcim sa v blízkosti, resp. na brehoch jeho malej riečky. A konal sa samozrejme aj tento rok – keďže viem, že toto miesto je jednoducho v tejto časti roka potrebné vidieť, sadol som na bicykel a spravil som si ďalší malý výlet. Ako som už spomenul – pred dvomi rokmi som v časti Musashi-Koyama býval, preto som toto miesto veľmi dobre poznal a dokonca som z nostalgie navštívil aj svoje bývalé ubytovanie. Takže drvivá väčšina nasledujúcich fotiek pochádza z brehov rieky Meguro River, niektoré z nich som spravil aj v spomínanom neďalekom parku. Počasie bolo síce nepekné a hlavne veterné, no všetko to stálo za to.
