Brinno’s Indoor Cherry Blossoms In Time Lapse
Every spring, millions of tourists flock to Japan to witness the iconic cherry blossoms, or Sakura as they are known. Hanami is an annual Japanese celebration of the fleeting beauty of flowers, in particular, the stunning splendor of the Sakura. Hanami is all about appreciating the simple pleasure of stopping to view the beautiful spring cherry blossoms.
Each year, thousands of people gather at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in Tokyo, to picnic and celebrate under blooming cherry blossom trees.
In honor of this delightful tradition, Brinno has created a miniaturized celebration of Hanami. Set in front of iconic Mt. Fuji, we used miniature “magic Sakura trees”, cardboard cutouts that “flower” crystals to represent the majestic Sakura tree. The cute animal characters signify a crowd gathering around the trees in appreciation of the flowering trees. Brinno documented the pink magic tree’s twelve hours of growth with their time lapse cameras, TLC120 and TLC200Pro, to show the interesting experiment in less than a minute.
