Well, I am now safely back in Tokyo and the weather is gorgeous! When I left in mid April, the blossom was still in full force along the Meguro river. The blossom has now been replaced by luscious leafy trees that create shade from the sun.
Needless to say, I was very excited to see Bob and Tom again, as well as Neil of course! Today they had their first taste of the big wide world....well, out on our balcony actually.
