Plum Garden at Kameido

Friendship Gift Postcard, Sender: Leo Baluyot
Sent on 1 April 2013, Sent from Narita Airport T1, Japan
Received on 10 April 2013, Traveled 13,183 km in 9 days

A close-up wood print of an unusual variety of plum tree by the ukiyo-e artist Hiroshige Utagawa. This postcard reproduction from the series "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" is by The Adachi Institute of Wooden Prints. 

Linking up for the very first time with Sakura Haruka's Wordless Wed. I am happy that my first image for her linky party is very appropriate for Sakura, which as we all know, means 'cherry blossoms'. The postcard was sent by Leo from his visit to the most recent Japanese Cherry Blossoms Festival.

      Following you too!

  2. I never knew Sakura meant cherry blossoms. They use the word for names of artist's materials brand names. I really like the block print.
