Martin Rousseau shares some of his Kyoto cherry blossom photos that were on display at the Nikon Plaza in Tokyo Shinjuku:

The ancient capital and iconic symbol of Japan Kyoto, together with Venice and Paris, are certainly some of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Martin Rousseau (website, flickr), a French national based in Japan for the past 18 years, had the great chance to work as a photographer to promote Kyoto around the world. He shot every angle of the city, shrines and various festivals.

Lasting only 10 days per year at the end of March and beginning of April, the Cherry Blossoms season is one of the most beautiful time of the year. All traditional temples and streets are covered with colorful cherry blossoms, ladies dressed in Yukatta (light Kimono) and it’s one of the most beautiful shows that nature is offering us.

I am happy to share with you these pictures that were part of an exhibition at Nikon Plaza in Tokyo Shinjuku - taken with D810 and 24-70 f.28 Nikkor, 20mm Nikkor and 24-70 f2.8 Tamron (for night shots):
