[April 2012] This is a view of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture in Japan.
This year, they were very lucky to have this festival on the day of the full bloom. The weather was good, too.
So many people came out here and I heard it was very difficult to get the space in the green in the middle of the road to have some lunch.
I was very impressed that all those people took their own rubbish home.
No public dustbins were open on the day and I did not see very much rubbish on the road either.
There were quite many drunken people, but at least they seemed to have followed the rule about the rubbish.
