    It is a five-storied pagoda of Arakurayama Sengen Park in Fujiyoshida City, Yamanashi Prefecture. This place has become popular year by year for both foreign tourists and Japanese tourists. Because we can see the five-storied pagoda, Mt Fuji and cherry blossom symbolizing Japan at the same time. In particular, It's very crowded when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. When you see this scene once, your image of Mt Fuji will change. (cropped)

    Story 1

    There’s a beautiful delicacy to this image, a sense of movement and a mood of anticipation. While it’s an excting photograph that captures Mount Fuji, the cherry blossoms, and the pagoda in great detail, the image also has a sense of romance and optimism. Above all it’s the feeling this image conveys that speaks to me. I want to be there, in that moment, to feel the air and float away
