Sakura Tunnel, Japan

In Japan is an amazing tunnel of cherry blossom trees or sakura. They create a magnificent tunnel of pink, the colors seeming to radiate off the light and onto everything in the tunnel. It looks like something straight out of a fairy tale.

The sea was the color of gunmetal. The choppy waves bashed against the shore. 

“Shit. I’m not going out in that.”

“Me either. Pass me another beer?" 

Someone dug into the cooler. Water dripped off the sides of the can as it changed hands.

"Only a crazy person would go in when it’s like this.”

As the words left his mouth, someone ran past them. Arms pumping at her sides. Wind whipping her hair around as she sprinted to the edge of the cliff.

“HEY! LADY! STOP!”

She dove. Slicing a clean arc through the air. Eyes squeezing shut as she plunged into the water. 

“Fuck! Should I call an ambulance?”

“No! Wait! I think I see her.”

They peeked over the edge of the cliff. Just in time to see her head break the surface of the water. She bobbed in the waves, rocked back and forth. Before they could call out to her, she waved her hand at them. And then she slipped beneath the surface. A strange glimmer flickering in the water for just a few seconds. 

“Was that…?”

“…Gimme another beer.”

Nabana No Sato. Nagashima-cho, Kuwana City - Japan

Nabana no Sato is a theme park dedicated to flowers. Located on the island of Nagashima in Kuwana City, the park is famous for its seasonal flower shows.

A new addition in recent times has been the Kawazu Sakura light tunnel. Just as spectacular as the light tunnel but not quite as large or long. It is around 100 meters long with 700,000 pink LED lights. The tunnel is popular with couples and is designed to resemble the Kawazu cherry tree, which is an early blooming variety of cherry tree. It certainly attracts the eye with its pink colour and is a hint of the warmth of spring.
