A memory of cherry blossom

2010.04.08

There is a small park near my parents’ house. It called “Kasumi Park”.
I used to go there after school with my friends and play until it’s getting dark.

Now, it’s a full of cherry blossoms and it reminds me the day of my entering primal school. On that day, I took a picture with my classmates and behind us there were beautiful cherry blossoms just like today. It’s been 22 years..?? so long time ago. How time flies, I can’t believe it !!

Today, I saw the 1st grade students. They were on the way to home from entering ceremony. They shoulder a new “randoseru” which is a bag pack for primal school students. It’s common in Japan. We usually had red colored for girls and black for boys but now a days, there are many colors! I saw light blue, pink and yellow. I wonder if it going to be more colorful. I’m the 1st girl from the right (sorry, it’s fuzzy…).

私の両親の家の近くに小さな公園があります。「かすみ公園」という名前です。
放課後に友達と暗くなるまでよく遊びました。

その公園は今、桜の花でいっぱいです。そしてその光景は小学校の入学式を思い出します。
その日に、同級生の友達と一緒に写真を撮りました、そして私達の後ろには今日と同じ様な綺麗な桜がありました。あれからもう22年?? が経とうとしています。そんな前になるなんて信じられません!!

今日、入学式から家に帰る途中の一年生を見かけました。皆、新しいランドセルを背負っています。日本の小学生は、大抵それを使います。昔は女の子が赤、男の子は黒が普通でしたが、最近ではいろんな色があります!水色、ピンクそして黄色を見ました。この先、もっと色が増えるのでしょうか。私は一番右の女の子です。(ぼやけていてすみません)

Honeymoon in Japan

2010.04.08



We have always known, that we will spent our honeymoon in Japan,
when we would get married one day.
In summer 2009 it became true and we celebrated our marriage.
We saved enough money and started to plan our trip to the
land of the smile!
We spent 12 nights in Tokyo (our favorite city) and
9 nights in Kyoto. From there we made daytrips to Nikko, Kamakura,
Hiroshima and Osaka.
11 nights we stayed in the Andon Ryokan and we felt very
comfortable. It was an adventure to sleep so near to the floor,
but so we felt like real Japanese! :)
We found a new hobby and attended the jakkuzi every evening.
For me, an interior designer, the hole house was a lucky strike. I
loved the details how to implement japanese folkways in modern
ways.
What was the best of the Andon Ryokan?
The best were all the nice and very obliging persons of the
Andoncrew! We felt like at home and very welcome! Thank you all!!
What was your favorite place of interest?
It is very hard to decide for one of all these very lovely places,
but our favorite was the Yanaka district near the Uenopark. There we
found the traditionell Japan close to the busy Tokyo.
Now, back in Germany, we got a lot of delightful impressions and
we will never forget our time in Japan, especially our time in Tokyo -
in the Andon Ryokan. If we ever will come back we are going to
stay by YOU!

Holger and Nadine from germany

Thank you very much for staying with us,Holger and Nadine!
I’m really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Japan : )
I also enjoyed talking with you in a lounge during your stay.
I hope I will visit your beautiful country,Germany someday and also hope to see you
again here in Japan : )
We are waiting for you!
Thank you very much.

OHANAMI

2010.04.07

I went to “Chidoriga-Fuchi Park” after finish working the other day for seeing the cherry blossoms and it was really beautiful! There is close to the Yasukuni shrine and were a lot of people.
It was my first time to visit at there and really nice and recommend place to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
I went to night time and illuminated them by LED lights.

千鳥ヶ淵公園へ行ってきました。靖国神社とともに初めて行きましたが、LEDライトでライトアップされていて、趣があり本当にきれいでした。

I was day off and back home yesterday, because I bought new pink car and just came here!
Car color is same as cherry blossoms and it was good for driving to picnick day yesterday, so I went to OHANAMI (picnick) with mother and Leo.
My home town is little far from Tokyo but there are many cherry trees and cole flowers.
The cherry trees are in full bloom and it was awesome!!
We bought many foods at the vendor and ate lunch under the tree :) After that we went to drive.
My favorite season is spring so it makes me really happy…

今回の休日は実家に帰り新しい桜色の車でドライブをしながら、母とレオと一緒にお花見をしました!
桜だけでなく、土手には菜の花も一面に広がっていて、本当にきれいでした。私の実家は熊谷なので、東京から少し離れていますが、もし時間に余裕があれば、田舎で東京とはまた違った春を見つけてみてはいかかでしょうか。

Japanese Traditional Wedding with cherry blossoms

2010.04.05

Sakura! Sakura! Sakura !

I could see a lot of cherry blossoms in Ueno area. I had a special opportunity at Yushimatenmangu where is very famous place of Pl am trees. They were only trees because it was finished in February but I saw many full of cherry blossoms across the main street. I love so much Springs during a year. I envy a couple having a wedding in there. They were so happy in a beautiful day.

{OMEDETO! SUENAGAKU OSHIAWASENI!}
I hope you have been keeping happiness long times.

週末、偶然に湯島天神で結婚式を見る事ができた。新婦さんの真っ白な着物と黒の羽織、黒と白の袴の新郎さん。何度見ても、美しい光景だ。これから、新しい船出をする日にふさわしい一日だった。天神さんの梅はもう裸木だけだったけれど、春日通りの反対側の道路は満開の桜だった。合格祈願のお礼参りも終わり、参拝客も少ない中、本堂の中はひと際明るく、二人の旅立ちを数分間一緒に味わうことができた。
教会で挙げる結婚式も素敵だけれど、神社で挙げる結婚式も素晴らしい。

忍ばずの池もこの様に満開、満開の桜のアーチを抜けるとボート乗り場、順番を待つ人で行列ができていた。何十年前だろう、この池ですっぽんの赤ちゃんを拾いあげて、家に持って帰り、水槽で飼ってみたものの、数日で死なせてしまった。名前は「ニッポン。」くだらないけど、すっぽんのニッポン。名前気かなり気に入ってた。
拾ってこなければ、この池で大日本なんて名前で親しまれてたかも?
せつない思い出 !

The right side picture is the Shinobazu pound. A lot of people had party under the trees. I felt a little cold but the weather was not bad.

Sumida River with Cherry blossoms

2010.04.04



I went to Sumida river side in Asakusa to see cherry blossoms in this morning.
Flowere festival was held there yesterday and today so there were throngs near the river though it was rather chilly.
I also visit to Sensoji temple.Some cherry trees blossomed there and those were so beautiful because the trees were very old and large,I think.
After that,I went to my favorit coffee shop near the Sumida river and had fine cake and a cup of coffee at terrace seats.Unfortunately,We couldn’t see any cherry blossoms from the seats,however we saw some boats which were filled to capacity,,!

今朝、隅田川にお花見に行ってきました。
昨日今日と花まつりが開催されていたこともあり、たくさんの人で賑わっていました。
四月に入ったにもかかわらず今朝もかなり肌寒く、厚手のコートやマフラー姿の人も目立ちました。
川辺は特に寒かったので少し移動して浅草寺にお参りに行きました。仲見世を抜けたお寺の入り口付近に何本か満開の桜を見かけました。古く大きな枝ぶりの木々がちょうど、まさに見ごろを迎えていて、とてもとてもきれいでした。
浅草をしばらく散策した後、隅田川沿いにある”カフェ・ムルソー”というお店でお茶をしました。残念ながらテラス席から桜を見ることはできませんでしたが、満員のボートが何隻も川を行き来するのが見えとて面白かったです。
