Sakura & Hakosuka GT-R

Spring is in full swing and with it comes the famous sakura season, an event that is highly celebrated by Japanese people. So, I thought I’d share something different for a change.

After all I do receive quite a bit of messages about life in Japan and hanami  (花見, literally "flower viewing") is one of the most famous local traditions. 

Here a few shots that I took these past days around my house.

A car guy sharing flower photos? Perhaps age is really kicking in; eventually it didn't take long before I ran into a R35 GT-R.

And took the opportunity to visit a small local temple close by.

Then proceeded with my stroll down Sumida river.

All the way to Odaiba.

Where I ran into an original Hakosuka GT-R at Toyota History Garage.

Of course, I had to take a couple of close ups of the details.

And the vintage GT-R badge.

Incidentally, it was sitting next to another great classic.

Mandatory sunset photo in front of Tokyo bay.

Hope you enjoyed the shots.

Until next time.
