O-hisashiburi Japan!

The first and foremost reason why I updated my blog was because of our recent trip to Japan. It has already been two years since my last visit to Japan and nine years since I last went to Tokyo. Much has changed but much has also stayed the same. Tokyo is still a nice place to go shopping and dine out but it is also very crowded and feels so impersonal.

We are very lucky that the cherry blossom season has just begun! You can see those pretty little flowers – ranging from white to bright pink – everywhere.

The thing is, that we are not the only ones enjoying the view. All public parks that have cherry trees are crowded – and by crowded I mean CROWDED. Sometimes there are so many people that you can hardly see the trees! The ground is covered in blankets and atop those are groups of people drinking and eating and enjoying life to the fullest. It’s quite tiring to walk among the crowd but also wonderful to enjoy the atmosphere.

Our journey has just begun, so stay tuned!

XO Alex
