Today’s pic (030305) is of one of those miniature sets I was telling you about at the Edo-Tokyo museum. It represents an area of the city where people would gather to hang out and have fun. To the left you see structures that were set up to host kabuki shows.

Today’s another nice sunny day, but the wind is still keeping things really cold. I remember that last year I was able to go out without a jacket around the end of February, but this year is different. This should mean that the cherry blossoms should only appear around the end of March, as they should (last year, because of early warm weather, they were all in bloom around mid-March). The sakura (cherry blossom) season is definitely the nicest time in Japan, and it’s something I look forward to every year.
