No Hanami in Tokyo?

When Tokyo started saving electricity, I first thought "Tokyo had become dark like Paris at night!"

But now it's actually darker.

During the day, the lights in the trains are off.

Even at night, the trains are so dark that they can't even read newspaper.

Naturally, they don't feel like dining out nor drinking. The whole city of Tokyo is quiet at night.

On an occasion like this, I believe it's perfect to enjoy the beauty of the nature.

Although, the governer of Tokyo is telling people to cancel "Hanami" (cherry blossom viewing) especially at night, people need something to look forward to. People need to enjoy life.

Well, I am going to do Hanami anyway, no matter where in the world!
