A New Year in Japan – Two Trees or One?

We’ll be leaving for home soon. We’ve decided tenge train route. We both have a couple more days off work, but our daughter goes back to her nursery tomorrow. But this post has nothing to do with that. At my wife’s grandmother’s house, there’s a black pine. Here it is.


But then, there’s also this.


They’re different. One’s thicker, the other is spinier. But they’re on the same tree. Don’t believe me? Look at this.


There you go. The shorter spiny needles are newer, I believe.

Anyway, we’ll be going home soon. And it’ll be back to normal blogging.
