I love spring in Japan.  The summers are hot and humid, but spring feels like a good Irish summer.  Yesterday, I finally felt well enough to venture outside to see the cherry blossoms.  It’s one of the most talked about seasons in Japan, but it is fleeting.  I feared that I would miss it, but there are still many flowering trees in this area.

I’m not sure how much longer the flowers will last.  The streets are covered in petals and when the wind picks it snows cherry blossoms.

    Hi Karen,

    Just found your blog – I like it! I used to live in Japan, on a few occasions and still have family over there so its interesting to read you perspectives.

    If you don’t mind sometime I might ask you for some up to date info on activities etc for families there as I have just started the Planet Family blog and would love some input from both locals and expats living in various countries around the globe.

    I look forward to following your blog 🙂
