A beautiful couple at Shinjuku Gyoen
The Sakura were late, but still beautiful as they entered the world.

Blossoms – Little girls everywhere would rather play in a puddle.
While visiting the sakura at the Yasukuni Shrine, we came across an interesting elderly gentleman. This shrine is the controversial war memorial shrine of Tokyo where the monks maintain and honor a list of over two million men and women who have died in war. The controversial issue is that within this list are about a thousand who are considered war criminals.

The adults were enjoying the sakura but the children would rather just climb. If you are picnicking with your college friends, do not fall asleep. No telling what will get stuffed in your pants. 🙂
