Sakura in Stockholm

There are two rows of trees on each side of a big fountain. Very nice when the weather is good.
I went to the Kungsträdgården park in central Stockholm with my mother to check out the sakura (cherry blossoms). Nowadays this is a quite popular thing, and it was very crowded. Lots of tourists.

Some people doing some Japanese manga cosplay.

One young woman dressed in a Japanese yukata doing quite Japanese hanami.

Very crowded. It is hard to find these many people in one place in Sweden.

Some people brought large reflecting mirrors with them...

You can play chess in the sakura fubuki (cherry blossom snow storm).

Kids are sometimes wading around in the fountain.
