Sakura 2018…With a Graduation Beforehand

Alex, our son, had his preschool graduation on March 26th…we are very proud of him! After the ceremony, we stopped by Hikawa Jinja (shrine) to view this year’s cherry blossoms. This place in Kawagoe is one of the most popular viewing spots…and is usually crowded. I even saw a drone hovering between the branches…times are changing.

Another place in Kawagoe is the Kawagoe Aquatic Park. They have dozens of sakura, and hundreds (maybe thousands?) go there for ohanami (sakura viewing) every blooming season.

Tokyo Station 9-13-15

This is my first post in a while, I apologize for my absence!! My work took me near Tokyo Station today, and before work, I walked around and took some photos that I couldn’t take last time! Tokyo Station is enormous, to say the least.
