La bohème / 新宿御苑

Today we went to Shinjuku Gyoen. It seems like people still have their new year decorations up, and I still seem to think they are pretty and take pictures of them whenever I see them.

The little neighbourhood around the park had many cute spots, and lots of little flower pots.

I saw this tree and wanted to take a picture, and all of a sudden I saw a woman in a yukata running in the background.

Happy park-face. My mom in the background, looking at the trees.

There were some traditional Japanese gardens which we went to see. The park was very quiet, not at all like hanami-season.

The crows around here are incredibly big – I caught a picture of this one before it spread its wings and flew away.

4th of January – and one tree was already in bloom!

After walking in the park – we went to La Bohème Cafe- a small cafe/restaurant next to the park. The food was good, the ceiling was high, and the music was loud. I had Gorgonzola pizza with honey, mom had pizza with shrimps, mushrooms, bell pepper and ham. It was really nice.

      Thank you so much for your comment! Japan is beautiful and strange and weird and not always the way it seems. I have been very happy about a lot of things here, and not so happy about a few things here as well. I think that if you go for a holiday, and you have an interest in Japan – you will have a great time! (Living here you sometimes see not so nice things, but just visiting, most things are fine and dandy!)

      & I just looked at your blog, so many pretty pictures!
