The picture on the header of this blog was snapped at Chidorigafuchi Park in Tokyo. We walked along the river where hundreds of trees were in full bloom. Occasionally, the wind would pick up and thousands of blossoms would swirled around in the air! We could smell the blossoms too, faint sweetness in the air.
In Kyoto, the wonderful old temples were framed by cherry blossoms too and hundreds of tourists took in the sights. We chased after Maikos – apprentice geishas, although one or two were tourists playing at being geishas we suspect!
