Spotted this newly blooming ume (plum) tree on my walk home yesterday. A sure sign that Spring is around the corner. In about a week or so it will be cherry blossom time!
Had an awesome evening with my special friend Miharu. Light veg curry at the vegan Stay Happy Cafe and chai at The Karate Chop, a local Vietnamese restaurant in Shimokitzawa, Tokyo. Could not have asked for a better evening. One thing I’ll miss when I leave is all the amazingly cute, quirky little shops and cafes… just LOVE them!
I walk past this VW Cafe Bus every Wednesday night on my way to yoga and always think how quirky and cute it looks. Made me smile today :)
I passed this Mikan (Mandarin Orange) tree on the way to work today. I always walk this route but have never noticed it before; today I just happened to look up. I’m glad I did!
The great thing about living in Tokyo is the abundance of beautiful shrines and temples. I pass this shrine every day on my way to work, and always feel a sense of peace as I walk by. It’s really so beautiful, especially when the sun shines on its bronze roof.
