For the next trip to Japan in winter, I would recommend you " Zao", Yamagata pref. Although it takes about 4hours to get there from Tokyo, as far as I'm concerned, it would be the best place in Japan I've ever been!! you can ski or snowbord, and yet there are some hot springs near the ski places! Highly recommended!!
Thank you for long staying with us!
We hope to see you again.
Thank you for staying with us!
Today, we received a post card from Montreal, Canada. One of the guests who stayed here sent it to us.
Well, it's brilliant to have post cards from all over the world. cos I would feel as if I was traveling there. I wish I could have plenty of money and time.... so that I could visit all of them. maybe, sometime.....
Merci beaucoup Monsieur Donald :)
The Japan Meteorological Agency annouced on March 4th that cherry blossoms will come in bloom in Tokyo around March 25th. Personally It was 3 years ago, when I was 24 years old, that I had a picnic under a cherry blossom tree for the first time. Cherry-blossom viewing was nothing rare for someone like me but, on the contrary, why did I miss such great and beautiful scenes untill then?
After all. we are located well enough to go enjoy cherry blossoms.
I hope to go for them this spring.
One of the rare good things about being an expat is that you get invited to annual parties at your embassy and to mingle with different people that you're not likely to have met otherwise. Here are couple of pictures of the foodstuff they've chosen to represent traditional Serbian dishes, although there was sushi and Chinese as well. When in Rome... I suppose.
Bon apetit :)
One of the Tokyo's landmarks - Tokyo tower had it's 50th anniversary couple of months ago. These pics are taken from Soujouji Temple, and you can see the main hall in the center. You can also go up the tower to see the panorama but not during the night though.
When I opened the front door of my appartment two days ago, i saw it snowing while it was raining. I got a little excited about it because little I did dream that it would snow in Tokyo this winter and since I am originally from south of Japan, snow is just as rare as a chocolate from a girl on Valentine's day to me. Sounds sentimental but it sure does make me happy when I see it snowing. Unlike every year I got three presents for that day this year. :>
It is likely to snow in Tokyo again soon so, I will wait and see what I can do when it doeas. maybe snowballing!!!!!
