Cherry blossom season has come swiftly, and actually caught me a little off-guard! However, I’m off to a good start, and thought I would share some photos with you of my adventures so far :)
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to go to a church retreat in Okutama (奥多摩), which (unbelievably) is still part of Tokyo. The retreat center is called Okutama Bible Chalet, and has rooms for groups to come and stay. It felt a little like summer camp, but in the spring :)
This post is off-season, as I went to Okutama in March, but I think it’s important, as we begin to welcome the holidays, to reflect back on the year and all that’s happened.
The Meguro River is the #1 cherry blossom viewing spot in Tokyo. As you might expect, it’s really crowded, but it’s popular for a reason.
