Traditionally at this time of the year people from all over the world travel to Japan to see the cherry blossom. Whilst the celebrations have been largely cancelled this season we thought we’d try to share a sense of the city scape at this time of year.

Photographer and keen cyclist Ben Richards ventured out on his tokyobike to capture some of the scenery and although we’re still trying to get used to the idea of experiencing the world through a screen we nevertheless enjoyed looking at the results – a few of the images are shared here.
