Tokyo is cold and it is very much still winter here. Have I said that I love the cold? It always surprises me when in the midst of the cold dreary days I see a glimpse of spring. I live in the perfect place to experience the seasons. Arisugawa park is across the road and has some of the most glorious autumn leaves and that is where I always spot the first plum blossoms in February. Then surrounding the Aiiku Hospital, also across the road, are cherry trees so I get experience them in all their glory at the end of March.
