Our 9th Anniversary

Nine years ago Todd and I decided to take a year off from our respective jobs and take off to live in Japan. We still haven't left. I often forget the exact date we came, I think it was the 23rd of March, but I am reminded every year by the coming of the cherry blossoms.

In my opinion the cherry blossoms are the best time of year solely because they herald the end of winter. Definitely May has better weather and the autumn has better food but something "tokubetsu" happens when the first blossoms appear.

For those with the time and inclination here is a forecast of blossom dates. It looks like the festivities will start this weekend.
