Greetings from Tokyo

cherry blossomsheadroomI'm on vacation in Japan until April 16th. The Sakura {cherry blossoms} came into full bloom upon our arrival last Thursday, they were a full week ahead of schedule. Watching them or hamami, is a national rite of spring in Japan, and people came out in droves last weekend to celebrate their short-lived beauty, eat and drink with their friends & family. We spent some time with friends around Senzoku-ike. I'll be posting my photos from Tokyo on my flickr photo blog until I return. Updated April 15th.
