[Takebashi] Chidorigafuchi Cherry Blossoms

千鳥ヶ淵の桜 BLOG

 At the end of March, I went to see the cherry blossoms at Chidorigafuchi with a colleague on my way home from work. Chidorigafuchi, why is it called Chidorigafuchi (*)? I don’t know the origin of the name, but the spectacle of the cherry blossoms at night, which is worthy of the name, was truly dreamlike.

 According to a colleague, the stalls have stopped opening due to the corona crisis. Certainly, there is not a single stall on the green road lined with cherry trees. It’s sad to say, but it’s human nature to prefer dumplings to flowers. That night, the cherry blossom viewers were absorbed in admiring the cherry blossoms while looking up at the sky.

*There are various theories about the origin of the name Chidori-ga-fuchi, such as the fact that many birds gather here in winter, and that the V-shaped moat resembles a plover.
