Hello, peeps today will start my last Sakura post in Tokyo, I can't believe is like a year ago I visit Japan for cherry blossom. Although I am not going back this year and will less travel because I am in preparation for something big! But I will continue to count the blessing I receive throughout the year, and continue to live the fullest in the year 2017.

The happiest things in 2016 are being traveled to Japan for cherry blossom and being proposed.

This is my last day in Japan and our flight is at night. Therefore we decide to plan our day in Japan for the last day. Since we didn't manage to visit Shinjuku Gyeon the day we visit Shinjuku, I wish to back here again this morning.

The petals and shadow reflect on the water are so pretty!

Shinjuku Gyeon

Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑) is one of Tokyo's largest and most popular parks. Located just a short walk from Shinjuku Station, the paid park's spacious lawns, meandering walking paths and tranquil scenery provide a relaxing escape from the busy urban center around it. In spring Shinjuku Gyoen becomes one of the best places in the city to see cherry blossoms.

See how pretty the gradient of the cherry blossom in the park!! In Shinjuku Gyeon, the trees and flower are well-taken care. Compare to other public parks, here are more quiet, fewer crowds and peaceful.

Gloomy sky every day during my visit to Japan.

I am in the midst of missing the cherry blossom right now. The weather and the view of Cherry Blossom when I look up the Sky.

Even though when I go is just early April, but you can saw there's a lot of cherry blossom petals on the ground. When it rains, it actually shortens the lifespan of cherry blossom. The life span of cherry blossom is very short and weak but the beauty remains. 

There's not a lot of cherry blossom trees in Shinjuku Gyeon. But there are few trees that are really pretty and enough for you to take photos.

Can't get enough of this super pretty gradient cherry blossom.

Since the crowds here are lesser, you can spend some time to take portrait photo with cherry blossom trees.

If I spend a longer time here I might able to get my own solo picture without people as background.

Selfie is not too bad too!

Since we have limited time to walk around the park, we head back to the station after we have a short walk around Shinjuku Gyeon.

Is just full of trees and mystery feel of a forest. 

Saw this vending machine when we are walking to the station. Love the colorful arrangement of the vending machine and decide to take my #sharonootd in front of it.

I got wear long john inside if not I think I will be frozen. Luckily the weather is not too cold during our last day stay.

One more post till my Japan trip ended and it will be my happiest visit to Pokemon Center. During the last day, my boyfriend actually strikes fever and it was really severe during the night before. We manage to buy the fever plaster and stick overnight. But my boyfriend body is really heaty too, we manage to visit a pharmacy at Shinjuku Station and consume the medicine.

I can say that the day was pretty hectic as he needs to take the luggage and we still need to visit few more places before we fly off. He feels much better though after the medicine. Although when we back to KL, he straight away took MC off for the next day work. Really sayang and feel pity for him but luckily we still pull it through and I am glad he sick during the last day of the trip instead the first few days.

But I am the one who actually flu and cough during the first few days of the trip. End up of drinking too much cold water in this freezing cold weather, my boyfriend got sick instead.

Stop my ranting and will gonna end my last cherry blossom post with lots of gratefulness and happiness!
