I began my last day in Tokyo at Ueno Park, famous for its beautiful cherry blossom trees and the hanami during the sakura season. I thought I had lucked out with this year being colder than usual in Tokyo and the flowers had not fully blossomed yet in Asakusa where I was staying. But apparently not the case in Ueno, much to my delight ^_^
So apparently, hanami began last weekend, i.e. yesterday. As my friend and I headed for a lazy Sunday afternoon of animation and music at his place in Naka-meguro, we walked amidst the crowd of flower gazers at the town’s little river famous for the annual hanami.
I had a great time doing things that a regular Tokyoite would do I suppose. Hope to be back soon, hopefully sooner than when the fall leaves turn amber ^_^
