Free stock photos of Japanese things like cherry blossoms
As a web designer, I always make use of the websites which provides lots of free images. In Japan, Ashinari and Pakutaso are one of the most popular websites. Especially, the pictures in Pakutaso are incredibly great even though those are free of charge.
However, it says on Pakutaso that if you want to use their pictures, you must have Japanese speaker, so I can’t recommend that people overseas use their photos.
Instead, I put other useful websites links including “Ashinari” and a picture from each website here! It includes the pictures of cherry blossoms and beautiful Japanese gardens. Most of them are in Japanese, but some have English version.
You can download many pictures as you like, no registration and credit required. You can use and modify it for commercial or personal works without asking permission. But of course, you are NOT allowed to claim the pictures as yours and basically their images are copyrighted by them.
