Cherry Blossoms in Tokyo

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve arrived in Tokyo! The weather was nice and cool when I arrived on Monday, but the day after that it started raining and it’s been freezing since then. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to get higher though, so I’m going to put my trust in the weather forecast for nowhurhur

This is going to be a bit of a photo-centric post because it’s past midnight and I should really sleep soon.

My first meal in Tokyo was made of lots of rice. Since the plane didn’t serve lunch my mom and I really wanted to eat something, but we had to get to the city soon so we picked some onigiri and sushi and juice packets off the shelf and hopped onto the train.

While my mom was resting in our apartment, I headed out to explore on my own for a bitkirakiraMy first priority was to see the sakura trees because the full bloom season was already ending (and the rain had washed them clean away), so I went to Shinjuku Gyouen. Some of the trees were still in full bloom! They were like the celebrities of the park because all the tourists were crowded around the remaining trees still covered in pink fluff.

Udon set for dinnergirlA hot bowl of soup and thick, springy noodles is perfect for warming you up on a cold and rainy day. The rice on the side was just as good too, because it was soaked in tororo (grated yam) and raw egg. Which is a lot more delicious than it actually sounds, really.

And the set came with dessert! This was a brown sugar creme brûlée with kinako ice cream. The slight roasted flavour of kinako balanced out the sweetness, so it was a good and light dessertkira kira

It’s only my first post of this trip and all the pictures are already of food…but then again it’s Japan after all.
