Hanami, or 'cherry blossom viewing' is my favourite time of year in Japan. It reminds me of the impermanence of life and that nothing lasts, which although somewhat melancholy, also teaches me to value every moment. Each year the blossoms come and go, reminding me that another year has passed, I am a year older and there are a finite number of hanami opportunities in life.

This video is intended as a relaxation piece. There is no story, only a theme. Enjoy the music and the images with a spare 7 minutes; don't rush it.

This is my last video produced in standard definition with a Panasonic NV-GS250. Filmed in the Naka-meguro area, Tokyo.

The music is a track by Empty Universe, titled Peekos Melody. emptyuniverse.net
