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.

However, this year we got lucky! It landed on a branch of a cherry blossom tree right next to a small road and anybody walking that road could see it very clearly. All birders had a very good look, all photographers took wonderful photos and all that without disturbing the environment, nor the bird itself, who hardly noticed us while having a good rest on its yearly one-day visit in the park.
