A memory of cherry blossom


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…).



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!!

Honeymoon in Japan


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
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!

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.


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…

Japanese Traditional Wedding with cherry blossoms


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.

I hope you have been keeping happiness long times.


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


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,,!
