Early evening Sakura

The cherry blossoms are in bloom. This was taken early evening near my house. I’ll try to get some more, better shots at the park over the weekend. doug

  1. My Nihongo no sensei and I took a leisurely stroll through Inokashira Koen in Kichijoji this morning. The cherry trees are in full bloom. There were a few gatherings with tarpaulins on the ground but mostly people of all ages were strolling the circling path around the lake. It was a relaxing yet somber occasion, considering the precarious conditions of so many Japanese to the north of Tokyo. Our stroll ended with lunch at a special restaurant in the western part of Kichijoji. A first for me with close to a 6-course lunch. It must be on the list for the next cherry blossom viewing. Cherry blossoms are so fascinating: At their most beautiful state they fall gently to the ground. Dave

    They are beautiful. What is the temperature in Tokyo now ? Here it is still cool, about 60 but we have no earthquakes. Love. M&M
