Spring is Here!

first sakura of the seaon

I still have many things to update about, but I thought that I would just share the first sakura (cherry blossoms) of the season. This picture was taken at Kitain Shrine, which is a 5 – 10 minute walk from my apartment.

…and here is a close up:

  1. Beautiful sakura. The sakura down the way is in blossom also–only a few trees but at least we have some. The people hang little bags of pepper or something to keep the deer from eating them. It is the house on the left as you are going down the hill–think it is used as a summer home.
