Whilst cherry blossom draws crowds to the moat that runs around the outside of the park, inside it’s relatively quiet, with wide open grassy spaces, streams, a pond, a few cherry trees and some lovely woodland.
It’s also very peaceful – and almost possible to forget that you’re in the middle of Tokyo.
The park is popular with schools, and whilst not pictured in this collection, there was a group of children there this morning being instructed in how to appreciate the nature!
Coming from a rural part of England that was something I managed without too much effort!
Back home, I planted our third pineapple – fingers crossed it takes. I added the chopped-up remainders of the body of the pineapple (that we ate most of last night) to the soil to help feed it.
I also noticed that the bulbs I planted last week have started to shoot – very happy to see them poking out from beneath the soil.
