The glowing full moon is a gorgeous sight wherever you take it in, however, and photographer 7 (@_szuna) recently showed why viewing the Pink Moon in Japan is considered such a big deal. 7, who travels the country snapping beautiful shots that bring Studio Ghibli films to life and highlighting Asakusa as a winter wonderland, observed the Pink Moon when it recently made an appearance on April 17th. Even on a cloudy evening, 7 was able to take this magical shot of the Pink Moon shining through a sea of cherry blossoms: Source: @_szuna "The Pink Moon engulfed by sakura is so beautiful." 桜に囲まれたピンクムーンが美しい。 pic.twitter.com/tr2H4AvIMg— 7 (@_szuna) April 17, 2022 As the Pink Moon comes out in April, which coincides with the full bloom of cherry blossoms in some regions of Japan, 7 was able to snap a shot that really helps the Pink Moon live up to its name. Many replied in wonder at the shot, with comments like "I'm glad I was born in Japan" and "I can't believe this type of scenery exists in Tokyo." It definitely makes you want to organize your next hanami (flower viewing) party around a full moon. For more awesome photography around Japan, be sure to follow 7 on Twitter.
