    "All can be sum into one word about Sakura's work. "Stunning!"

    When I first sign up to Flickr, I was browsing around and was mesmerized by the beauty she capture in her photographs. Just absolutely breath taking! The colors, the life, the energy...I am totally in awe...probably forever. I am inspired and totally energized by her pieces. (Her macro shots are now one of my energy booster next to meditation ;D)

    If anyone is looking for macro shots of nature's wonder, she has definitely capture its essence."

    "What draws me to *Sakura*s' photos are her macros. The colors are absolutely incredible. It is almost as if the viewer is bathing in the colors, or breathing in the colors; for they have an atmosphere all of their own, made up of color and light. To look at a sampling of her work is to see the colors of an artist's palette layed out in front of you. I have been doing macros for some time, but still cannot even fathom how she gets such pure tones and hues of colors isolated through the lens. Absolute art. What more can I say. Every time I see one of her macros it is like time stands still for that one moment and nothing else occupies my senses other than those colors. I am honored that she shares her skill with us."

    "If there were a phrase to describe Sakura's works, it would be something like "a harmonious song of colour and form". There is a definitely a style about her works, and that is all that makes the difference, making every viewing of her photostream an extreme pleasure."

    "I usually don't like macro, I don't know why but pixtures about small animals or flowers tht keep me watching are not so commons. Sakura is one of that few exception. I love her shoots , live the way she's seeing through her subjects not facing only the bare reality of a flower or a small bug. Keep on this way!"

    When I was a kid, I use to listence to the radio the Song "Sakura" Sakura......It is so beautiful & serene!!

    While I live in Tokyo, I have never met her at all.

    I have reviewed her site here. What I can say is her works is superb as compare to the meaning of the Song Sakura!! Extremely Peotic & beautiful.

    To me, She is not a photographer, she is a great imaging aritst.

    Please visit her more often to discover....

    You are great....

    "sakura's stream is one of my favorites. her photos are alive with the
    sensuality of the ordinary and the extraordinary. there are no people
    in sakura's world only frogs, berry tarts, sugar candied delights,
    exotic flowers, frogs, mystical cookies, frappucinno confections,
    frogs, tortes and tarts, leafy green leaves, misty raindrop petals,
    lonely neon streets at night, frogs, cosmos, frogs and more frogs.
    did i forget to mention she likes frogs?"

    "What impresses greatly is that, as the profile states, *Sakura* is always walking with a camera. As a regular visitor to this stream, I have come to the conclusion that *Sakura* must walk a lot! Looking at several photos, one will be struck that *Sakura* is not a linear observer - but is constantly looking up, down, all around.
    It is refreshing to see someone taking so much pleasure in experimenting with diverse subjects and materials.
    Not every photo is a success but many are worthy of continued appreciation."
