The change was a big change and has forced me to become a slightly different person. I feel a lot less shy than I did in the UK, yet I'm managing to be more socially awkward - not knowing the language does that to you.
But I'm loving my time here so far. I don't think I'll particularly write about events in any order but just as and when the creative bug strikes me.
So today's post... It's Sakura Season in Japan, which means all the cherry blossoms are out and the parks get super crowded and people have drunken picnics under the trees to appreciate the flowers (Or perhaps the alcohol?).
I must admit that while the cherry blossom is beautiful, I just don't understand why everyone likes Hanami so much. Perhaps I'm just some uneducated slob who can't appreciate the beauty, but it's just a load of flowers to me!
But for those of you that do appreciate it, I'll leave you to enjoy the few pictures I took of the Sakura around Ueno Park.
So what do you think? Just flowers, or is there something I'm missing?
