Last weekend I went to a garden with a large pond filled with Koi. For 100 yen, visitors could buy a cup of pellets to feed to the fish. The koi are actually really keen on people, since they associate them with food. Even if you don’t have food, they still come to the water’s edge. This gal (since there are usually only one male in a pond) tried to eat my camera.
The mornings have been coming a little earlier and earlier each day. It hasn’t impacted my sleep cycle all too much just yet, but it will soon enough.
The weather has been pretty great recently. With the exception of a bit of rain, the days have been rather warm. Many Japanese people are super proud of their distinct four seasons, and it seems for good reason.
Sakura season is almost over, but luck for me, I could get a decent number of photos. The majority of my cherry blossom viewing adventures were done in Okazaki and Kyoto.
