Early blossoms and Hanami

There weren't many cherry trees blooming in Tokyo this past weekend. The buds are out in force, but they haven't burst open to reveal the pale pink flowers that welcome spring.

It didn't seem to matter to most that the majority of trees were not flowering, just yet.

I am not sure what variety of cherry this is, perhaps it's not even a cherry tree. Anyway, it didn't matter to the revelers that there were already picnicking under the pale pink flowers and fresh green leaves .
