Spring is creeping North, a bit too slowly for my liking. The plums are blooming, we’re finally getting buds on the sakura, and… wait, what’s with this snow?!? Ahhh, March.


A couple from our Friday night basketball group finally got married, and though they didn’t have a ceremony, we had a nice party for them anyway! Since the weather is getting warmer, we are getting more motivation to actually play!

One rainy day I walked by these plums in full bloom, though the raindrops were already scattering petals.

Don’t know why, but I really like this picture!

Higashi in the snow. It very rarely snows here, and even rarer during the day… usually from the night before. This day, however, the snow started in the afternoon and just didn’t stop!

By nightfall we had gotten a couple of centimeters, so Kenji and I decided to take a drive around in it.

We headed toward Onishi, and finally decided to turn around after awhile. Here, the weight of the snow makes these bamboo touch the road.

We turn down a road this tree was on… and mistake a field for a road (hey, snow covered everything and it was hard to see!) We sorta got, er, stuck. Some nice man finally came around and helped pull us out, but yeah. That wasn’t very fun.

Footsteps in the headlights!

The next mrning, it had finally stopped, but not before covering everything. The stairs were scary that morning! I decided not to risk biking and walked instead, giving me lots of chances to snap pictures!

The plums were really pretty with the snow on them! I like this delicate pink color a lot!

This picture is neat… it looks like ice, but it had melted to slush so you didn’t slip when you stepped. But the air is still trapped under. Interesting!

White plums near school.

Fast-forward a few days, and the weather turns beautiful and actually HOT! Well, relatively anyway. These plums look fluffy!

Almost sakura season…
