As I mentioned in my last post, I went out to Akihabara yesterday and boy it sure was super crowded! Haha XD I get really tired walking through crowds, but there were so many interesting people to look at, even super stylish cute cute gyaru! I was wearing high heals yesterday, and my feet are so hurt today! I got blisters, sores and the ball of the foot is super sensitive. TT
I didn't get into a Maid Cafe however, they were all super crowded because of Golden week, and I didn't feel like waiting in line for hours. I promise I will go later in May, and have a great report for you! But I did get a lot of nice photos of maids on the street, and I can get those for free haha!

But as I said, the weather in Japan right now is really beautiful. There are flowers blooming everywhere! When I left Minnesota the only flowers that had begun blooming were the lilacs and tulips. Our apple tree hadn't even flowered. So I was so envigorated to see all the beautiful plants here in Tokyo along my daily route.
Everyday I walk the same streets, and along the Shinnakagawa river, to get to the train station. Back in January, I though the views were pretty good even though most plants were dormant. But now, everything looks so warm! I will just leave you with the photos I took of flowers yesterday, I hope it will brighten up your day!
Along the river there are all these shaped flower bush fences. Natural, beautiful and useful!
Even cement can't hold back the flowers
I always pass this small personal farm on my daily route! I wonder if they sell the vegetables?

These flowers look tropical to me
So many people in Japan have huge gardens crammed into the small spaces around their homes. It really makes the urban landscape more lovely!
