It may only be early February, but that’s when the signs of spring appear in the Tokyo area of Japan. This morning, we went for a walk to see Mt. Fuji, but it was too hazy.
So we focused on what was around us. We were near the Fujisawa campus of Keio University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Japan, and we were able to enjoy nature.
The Kawazu cherry trees have started blooming, and we were also greeted by some mejiro, or Japanese white-eye.
We were also surprised by a red-roofed shrine, Utsumochi Shrine.
The cherry trees weren’t the only things blooming. The Japanese plum trees continue to bloom, too.
This week is going to warm up significantly. On average, February is the coldest month here. However, the forecast for Saturday is 18 degrees and cloudy. Valentine’s Day will be a balmy 23 degrees and rainy. Very surprising!
Are you stuck in the middle of winter, or is spring beginning to show itself where you live? Or are you in summer in the Southern Hemisphere?
