April is one of my favourite months in Japan – the temperature in Tokyo clearly rising, with it usually hitting at least 20 degrees by the end of the month. It really is the perfect weather – blue skies, without the humidity we are burdened with in the summer months. April in Tokyo reminds me a bit of when I visited Monterey in California during August. You are just content to just sit outside all day, watching the world go by.
I was lucky enough to enjoy the sakura in three different parts of Japan this year, with each place blooming at different dates. We didn’t plan it that way, but the end result was a full month of enjoying the cherry blossoms. With an extended spring break for the both of us, Mrs IKIMASHO and I made two separate trips to Naoshima in Kawaga, as well as Matsumoto up north in Nagano. On top of that, there was the usual wandering about local neighborhoods in Tokyo.
Looking back on the pics, I’m reminded how many nice experiences we had, and I hope you enjoy the mood too.
