The cherry-blossom at Langelinie Park was in full splendour to celebrate the Sakura Festival last weekend. People picnicked under the trees or bought Japanese food and drinks from the stalls.
It was an opportunity for Danes to embrace Japanese culture, including Samurai-style sword fighting, martial arts, tea ceremonies, a karaoke contest and, of course, Cosplay!
And boy did they take it seriously. Some respected Japanese beauty standards, while others just went for a whole new self-expression. Perhaps there was too much darkness behind all that pink, but we must admit that they were inspiring.
