Spring is coming—is here? Since I have been back its been sunny and relatively warm almost everyday (in the 60s-farenheit), except Friday and today. Its also been incredibly windy. The wind in Tokyo has been a source of amazement since the beginning of the year. There have been times when its so loud you can’t sleep. The torrential downpours also amaze me. Haha. We get a lot of rain in Seattle but its more of an all-day drizzle, wouldn’t you say? Anyway…. here are some pictures from my walk in lovely Okachimachi/Ueno the other day. I looked it up and it turns out that lake I mentioned in my last post is actually called Shinobazu Pond. I also went to the Tokyo National Museum (just sort of stumbled upon it), but I felt a little cheated of my 400yen (~$4) as the whole 2nd floor was closed for renovation!
Now, I have a question for you.
Have you ever experienced bad dreams after moving somewhere new? I’ve never really been one to have nightmares, but I do fairly often in Japan. When I first moved here in September I had them frequently, and my dreams have been unsettling since I’ve gotten back this time too (but not at all in Seattle/Portland). Now, I wouldn’t exactly call them nightmares–I don’t wake up screaming or anything – but they’re…as I said, unsettling.
Is Japan haunted?! I’m only sort of kidding, Isn’t this a little odd? : p
Tell me what you think! Oh and I hope you liked the pictures– getting excited for the cherry blossoms??
