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.
