The center of Tokyo now looks more like a sea of yellow than a major metropolis.

This week rapeseed flowers bloomed in the central district of Tokyo at the Hama-rikyu Gardens. Usually these flowers appear in mid-March, but record warm temperatures this winter have possibly triggered an early bloom.

About 300,000 rapeseed flowers are planted in the park, providing a rare sight for locals and visitors alike.
