Hanami (Cherry Blossom Viewing)

We were in Japan for the peak of cherry blossom season, so naturally we did some viewing, or Hanami.  Here are some of the more arty shots I got.
Ryoanji Temple:
This is from the Imperial Palace East Gardens:
Quoth the Raven:
There was a real crowd in Ueno park to view the blossoms:
I enjoyed this crane in the old town area of Kyoto:
These are the rare Omuro Sakura variety of cherry tree at Ninna-ji Temple, the grounds were filled with families out for a picnic:
Ok, I think these are plum blossoms but they are still nice:
