2017 May Wrap-up

The first week of May was Golden Week. I spent the first day out in Harajuku, which was surprisingly empty in comparison to what I’ve seen during my other visits there. Taking the week as more of relaxation from the hectic-ness in April than a time for sightseeing, I went to my favorite spots (parts of Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, Ikebukuro, Akihabara) and bought a few things for myself.

花見 Cherry Blossoms

2017 late-March/early-April

Through recommendations from my co-workers, I stopped by Ueno Park a few times to check up on the cherry blossoms, since it would be a shame to not see one of the biggest symbols of Japan during my first spring here. The first few times I went, the blossoms were barely blooming, yet already there were a lot of people taking pictures of them. Although I’ve seen cherry blossoms in the past, seeing so many trees in a row with light-pink blossoms that looked as though they would fall apart with a single touch was breathtaking.
