About three weeks have passed since arriving in Japan and time is already flying by! It was a bit overwhelming at first, but I have grown accustomed to my new home :] The cherry blossoms bloomed a week after my arrival, and they are as beautiful as everyone says they are. This past weekend I was able to experience hanami (花見, flower viewing) with many other IES students and their Epals. It was really fun and we were even asked by a Japanese television crew from ZIP to talk about what drew us to the spot for hanami!
Here are some pictures from my weekend at Ueno Park :]
