I am looking forward to attending this year's spring viewing of the cherry blossoms (櫻). It's always a beautiful sight - long, straight rows of the sakura trees in full bloom extending well beyond what one can see. The wind will be blowing and the petals will be all around you as they spiral down earthwards.

Feels just like a scene out of wuxia - two master swordsmen facing each other in a duel of death in such a heavenly setting, and eventually the white petals will be stained red with the blood of the loser...

Anyway, I have digressed. All that is needed to complement the view would be sake, dumplings and the SO/ group of close friends.

I wish you are here.
