This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

梅, Plum

It’s February 3rd, Setsubun. Japanese people throw beans at demons in shrines, at school and in their homes. This year it’s unusually warm: 14 C. The previous 2 days have even been warmer, with temperatures close to 20C in the weekend. No wonder the plum blossom is early. And the White-eyes happy. 

メジロ, Japanese White-eye
