Well finally the Sakura (cherry blossom) is starting to come out and it really is quite spectacular. We live near the Meguro river where there are hundreds of sakura trees that run along each side of the river and every year people flock there to take photos and soak up the atmosphere. There are loads of people with food stalls selling amazing smelling food, and beer to wash it down with, and there are lanterns strung up along the river to really enhance the beautiful blossom. I was there at twilight on saturday and it was pretty stunning. There was also a jazz band set up and they were playing smooth jazz as the sun went down. Not bad!
