Oh my goodness, thank you so much for such glorious photos! I long to be there and enjoy such beauty in person.
You made my day, once again, which needed a little something special in it.
My pleasure. I hope your day continues to improve. The sakura is unbelievable this year, just gorgeous. Just heading out to see some more.
Such beautiful photos…I have always wanted to visit Japan but your photos will probably be the closest I will get to it. Thank you for posting them!
I am really glad you like them. Arigato.
Dear Mr G
Three wows in a row. Spring. Spring. Spring. Pretty, no gorgeous in pink And white.
Here March strode in like a … . Yesterday night I went to Bach’s Passion of St Matthew with my friend Arina. We both came out with the final chorale ringing in our ears to be met with an icebear in a hurry to prove that there exists such an element as polar wind.
Your images are the proof of bloom to come. We await it in Patience …
Greetings from an Amsterdam on the brink of changing seasons.
PS In a floral longing for hyacinths I wore Grand Amour, well matched with the wood of Jesus’ cross.
I love you. The Passion Of St Matthew is one of my favourite pieces of music. I love this connection.
Such a comfort in this Passion. Blossom!
I was in Ueno Park this time last year. It was a wonderful experience I went again to the Zoo to see the giant Pandas. Everyone was very happy and having a great time. Japanese people really know how to have a simple good time. Next time I am in Japan I want to go to some more far flung Cherry Blossom parks than the central City ones. After Ueno park I went to that traditional Market next to it I forget its name and bought a bag and shoes. i get comments on that bag everywhere. I have worn the shoes constantly.Both Bargains… I also bought 2 10 bob watches that have fallen apart. The watches still work but the straps have collapsed. A great afternoon out in Tokyo. I never got to the Art Galley or Museum which are also in Ueno Park… next time. You could spend a lot of time in the Ueno area and the station is quite easy for a tourist to negotiate.
I love that area too: the old Tokyo; the museums, but also the retro market area you talk about – Amerikadori or something. All joke shops and stands of various types – I even bought a costume for our Sexual Emergency party there. Fantastic area to waste a day.
