Plum Blossoms in Tokyo


White Plum Blossoms in Tokyo

I got up early this morning, and sensed that spring is around the corner.

So, I went to a park to took some photos.

These are plum (or apricot) blossoms. They bloom before cherry blossoms.

Many Japanese people drink and go a little bit wild viewing cherry blossoms (it's just once a year event!).

But they appreciate the plum blossoms quietly without beer. This is more like a Japanese feeling for me.

In some parts of the world, it was a very cold winter. But spring is coming soon!
