"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."

"Her pictures are truly amazing… she has an outstanding photostream and I can’t not visit it every once in a while… most of her pictures are astonishing and they keep me speechless… the colors, the little things, and the simplicity she presents in each shot is wonderful… you are one of my favorite members here in flickr… and I just love your shots. Again, I love the colors in every shot; they’re so soft, pleasant, and lifelike...
an inspirational professional!
Always looking forward for your latest’s, wish you all the best!

"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."

"Oh if I could only take fotos like sakura, I would be a happy woman. Her delicate, dreamy and colorful fotos make me all fuzzy and happy! I have so many of her fotos faved it is ridiculous! Her talent is incredibly amazing! THank you so much sakura for sharing your fotos! ; )

"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."

"Sakura has one of the most interesting and beautiful photo stream on Flickr. Every single picture is unique and pretty. Most of them are very dreamy and the colors are amazing!!! Actually I add almost every pic to my favorites!!!! ^.^"

"From everything i have seen on flickr, and from visiting other countries, it seems the Japanese are absolute masters at appreciating the fine detail in nature. You, Sakura, are most definitely doing that, and doing it wonderfully. Your photos are an inspiration!"

"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!"
January 4th, 2008
"Sakura's photos are one of my favorites. She have a great talent to create her fantastic and dreamy world. She can always take fabulous pictures of flowers.

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....
I appreciate your everything......"

"*Sakura* is my favourite photographer on flickr.
It's impossible to put into words just how beautiful her photos are.
The colours and details she captures are stunning."

"I give my first Testimonial to Sakura!! She is a brilliant photographer. She can always take some nice pictures, esp. of flowers. Every time I browse her photo, it always let me surprise how beautiful the world is."

"Glorious shots, full of colour. Amazing macro photos!!"
March 14th, 2007
"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?"

Morioka, Japan says:
"Amazing color detail and ability to catch the photo. I love the fact you walk with your camera."
May 9th, 2006
"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."
