The Japanese observe the spring blossoms as a part of hanami - the appreciation of the transient beauty - but you don‘t need a deep, philosophical meaning to enjoy a leisurely stroll down these picturesque streets.

Walking down such a street can be mesmerizing, but there are practical advantages, too. Apparently, tree-lined streets help with all sorts of heat-related urban problems, increase evapotranspiration (evaporation and transpiration from the Earth's surface) and encourage walking and cycling.

This list is by no means complete, so if you have your own photos of beautiful streets, please add them - don't be shy!

Not to be the one to cry "Photoshop!", but really, though. Everything's been put to grayscale except the leaves.
