I ♥ Sakura!

I have now lived in Japan for almost an entire year. When I arrived last March, the sakura (cherry blossoms) had begun blooming, but had not reached their peak. I'm leaving the same day I came (the 22nd!) so I I thought I was going to miss the cherry blossom season. However, there are many cherry trees that bloom a bit earlier so I have gotten to see sakura again! :)

Here are a couple pictures that I took today near the park:

I pretended to take a picture of the sakura when I took this next picture. It's an old lady with purple hair.

The sakura season in Japan is a big deal, so there is a lot of sakura merchandise this time of year. It's hard to resist! Shopping in Tokyo is always a bit dangerous for me, but especially so with so much cute pink flowery stuff! :)

I bought a cute bento box (Japanese lunch box).

Here's the cloth to wrap around the lunch box.

This is the cup I talked about in my previous post about Tokyo.

This is a large notepad. The paper inside is just as beautiful as the cover! I will use the paper in my scrapbook.

I'm super glad to enjoy the sakura again before I leave! :)
