Build up to Blossom Season

Well, I am now safely back in Tokyo and have been greeted by the mayhem of the build up to sakura season. Sakura means cherry blossom and the sakura trees truly come alive with soft cotton wool balls of blossom all over the city. This usually occurs at the end of March/beginning of April, but my local supermarket (as well as many other shops and restaurants) has decided to get into the spirit of the season and decorated every possible space available with plastic blossom in anticipation for the real thing.
