Sakura & Tanjoubi

I actually wrote a really long post about the reasons why I love Japan but it seems like I can’t finish writing it because every hour new reasons seem to appear, so here’s a post on just beautiful sakura.


The first Sakura tree I saw since I came here on 1st April.


Yoyogi park about a week ago with all the sakura buds, it is full bloom now!


On my birthday!

Somehow I just feel very blessed to be born in the beginning of spring just around sakura bloom.

What a beautiful season to celebrate.


This was yesterday at Meguro. It was a surprise because I was there for my nail appointment and totally didn’t expect to see any sakura, let alone such an entire heaven of cherry blossom.

Was walking alone then I saw it and was like what is this?!?!?!!!!! Mother of god.

Wasn’t my first time seeing sakura but seeing it again made my heart almost burst with happiness. It is so beautiful I don’t even!!!!$&&*^


Taken with iPhone!!


Also it was the best birthday ever. Just being here make me shitlessly happy.

I don’t even know if I could describe how I felt. It’s something along the lines of i’m living a dream that i never even dare to have and my life is pretty much complete and it’s okay if I die anytime now.

And I don’t even know how I can make it sound like i’m not exaggerating.


And then I start to fear the consequences of being so happy. Of course for normal people it’s just a few extra laugh lines but I’m naturally a more pessimistic person and they say 物极必反 (things that reach the extreme will go the opposite way).

I blame Chinese education.


Ending this post with a picture of a gift I got for my kareshi (actually I own self want to try wtf) , and it is white strawberries!! Although more pink than white.

On the box it says “The Scent of First Love”.

From how pretty it looks you will think that it taste sour like hell. But that’s the sweetest and most delicious strawbie I’ve ever had.

I guess I will just just stop thinking and remain naively and shitlessly happy for now.

    Anybody who biuys you strawberries tends to be a good person
    Lucky chap
    Champagne along with them for breakfast works even better

    Although Jap strawberries are rubbish, too much water not enough sugar

    Lovely photos of the Cherry, aka Sakura blossoms!

    In 1906 over 1000 Sakura trees were imported from Yokohama Nursery Company in Japan, and planted in Washington D.C.

    I would love to visit Japan during the Sakura blossom season, but until then your beautiful photos, which are made more so by your appearance, will satisfy me!

    Happy travels.

  33. Shanee says:

    Because of you, I am determined to save up more so that i’ll be able to go to Japan and visit awesome places and eat awesome food. Hihi 😀
    But I have a question…
    Will I be able to survive in a foreign land not knowing their language?
    I mean, english is good enough right? And maybe learn the basics 🙂

  34. vOon says:

    when everything is so good…just feel that sure got bad things happen soon >.<
