Having a little bit of time last weekend, I decided to do some traveling. I visited a famous garden in Mie. It was pretty packed, but I could still get a few good pictures.
It seemed like this year’s cherry blossom season was especially short. The delicate white and pink petals have already been mostly replaced by green leaves in many places.
Finished my first week of working in Gifu Prefecture.
Tomorrow I have some plans to go to a cherry blossom festival with some coworkers. Then, Monday, I’ll meet some friends to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday. Somewhere in there I need to remember to do my laundry…

Tokyo and other cities have reported that their trees started blossoming at the end of March. I hope ours do so soon.
