My sister (who’s living in Japan at the moment) has been going on and on about spring in Japan. It kinda made me wish that I hadn’t gone on and on about our gorgeous summer Christmas while she was freezing her ass off under 4 layers of clothing, tornados and earthquakes.
She’s seen the famous Miyako Odori (cherry blossom dance), walked through streets covered in cherry blossom petals AND seen a Katsushika Hokusai exhibition. I’m sooo jealous!
The pic above (by Angela Miksovsky), with all it’s saturated colours, beautiful lighting and yes, pretty flowers… completely sums up my romantic yearning to visit the place one day. And to buy bucket loads of Japanese wood block prints.
