Today's cherry blossoms in Kyoto. Now almost in full bloom in the center of Kyoto city. And great many people pour into the city to view cherry blossoms. Of course I am one of them. Soon they will disappear. That's why I am goaded to take pictures every day.

Last night I had a great time with my daughter in this Japanese-style Indian restaurant "Magicspice" in Namba, Osaka. The outside appearance is all red as you see, and inside too! The food was so yummy.
Next month my daughter will have a second baby. My second grandkid! Excited!!

Magnolia and cherry blossom. Each has its own beauty and I love both.
Took this picture from the Middle Gate of the Todaiji Temple in Nara today. You see the huge Buddha Hall and a cherry tree.
I dedicate this post to Scenic Sunday.

Look!! Today I found the first cherry blossom blooming in Osaka Castle Park. Today's temperature went up to 20 degrees Celsius, so maybe cherry trees were surprised at the warm weather. I don't know why, but I feel happy to see cherry blossoms (my DNA?). I'm sure I'll post more photos of cherry blossoms soon. Today is the first one. Enjoy it.

This is Kyoto Station Building designed by Hiroshi Hara. I took this picture at the place just in front of the station. Some people say it is too modern for Kyoto, ancient capital of Japan. But I love this building. It has various functions, such as a luxurious hotel, a department store, a theater, a museum and many shops and restaurants as well as three Kyoto stations of different railroad companies.

I was happy to stand with three Japanese popular comedians. This is the front of the Namba Grand Kagetsu Theater, very famous as home of Osaka comedy.

Just before sunset I was in the Japanese plum garden of Osaka Castle. As you see, almost in full bloom. I'm sure in the daytime a lot of people came to enjoy the bloom.
I can't choose the best picture, so today I'll show you a series of Japanese plums with cyber aroma.

Nara Park is famous for its tame deer walking, eating and sleeping freely there. They are watching who buys deer cracker. As soon as they find a target, they come and start bowing on the scrounge like this.
Finally it is getting warmer and I feel spring is around the corner in Osaka, Japan.
How is your place?

Even still cold now, I feel spring is approaching. On the mountain peak you see some snow. But strong rapeseed smell pleasured me. I took this picture at the lakeside of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture a few days ago.

This is a part of the Japanese garden of Hikone Castle Museum in Shiga Prefecture.
Water is dropping from the bamboo pipe and a red camellia is placed on a green bamboo. On the left side of the stone basin some snow remains.
In the second picture you see several ways to protect trees against snow.
