It was a beautiful Friday afternoon and there was still time before sunset, so I hopped on the train and then the bus to Iwakuni Kintai Bridge to see if the plum blossoms were blooming much yet. They weren’t, but at least there were lots of cats there to make up for it!
This is the only tree that looked like it was making serious progress. The blossoms smelled wonderful.
Around the time that I’d decided that I wasn’t probably going to be able to find that many plum blossoms after all, I came upon a small herd of cats^^
Fun fact: “stray cat” is “nora-neko” in Japanese.
This might be the biggest, fluffiest cat I’ve seen in Japan. He was the size of my fluffy cat Charles in California.
The quality’s not great, but I did get him eventually.
I’m planning on going out again to see the blossoms this weekend, but they might not be really nice until next week, since it’s been a cold year. We’ll see.
