Interesting Photo of the Day: This Beautiful Flower Tunnel Will Leave You Speechless

Nakameguro may generally be a quiet residential district in Tokyo, Japan, but when the 800 cherry trees that line the district’s concrete canal, Meguro River, bloom in early April, the blossoms understandably attract hoards of admiring locals and tourists. Even better: for the Nakameguro Sakura Festival, locals light the trees in the evenings, creating a truly magical flower tunnel.

Thanks to local hobbyist Masai Okeda, you don’t necessarily have to brave the crowds to get a taste of the Sakura Tunnel’s beauty:
