This year Sakura blooming in Japan is a bit early and today when I’m writing this blog, Sakura is about to leave Tokyo.
Sakura is moving north and this week, people in Miyagi might be able to see. Also next week I hope I have time to move around Fujisan to see Sakura with my lovely mountain.
Tokyo Skytree is a miracle tower that it can be transformed into each Japan season. Yes, during this period, the color is pink of Sakura.
Kudanshita in Chidorigafuchi park is also one of the most famous Sakura sight seeing in Tokyo. People are crowded. Sakura are crowded. This is really feeling of Japan :)
Naka-Meguro station where Meguro river run through, is one of the most beautiful Sakura view. Small town, Sakura and Smiling from people here make everyone happy on Sakura season.
Kinuta park in Yoga station is the nearest park that I visit everytime during Sakura season. Big Sakura tree. People come for hanami. It’s one of the very good environment place in Tokyo especially Sakura season.
Like past years, I have time to see Sakura during weekend only. 2 weeks is the most time you can see full bloom and just hope that the weather is good enough to make my Sakura look more beautiful.
After this week, it’s time to say goodbye Sakura 2014 in Tokyo. I think I still have chance to meet Sakura again in Fujisan and Tohoku area.
Sakura is always lovely & beautiful … :D

Time to say goodbye to autumn color this year in Japan.
After this week, leafs will soon disappear from their trees and real winter is already coming.
Last weekend I just take a rest from every week traveling for autumn color in November by walk slowly in some Tokyo parks. Koishikawa Korakuen, one of the most beautiful park in Tokyo, Yoyogi park and Ueno park are my peaceful week destinations.
December is a month of happiness. Wish everyone have a very good time in this month and after new year, life must go on again :D
PS. My Adobe Lightroom 5.2 still can’t read .NEF from Nikon Df. I have to modify exif data to Nikon D4 instead :P

Come back here again in Takao after completely 3 years.
Takao is the mountain in Tokyo with very nice city and Fujisan view point. This is the reason why it’s one of the most favorite hiking place for Tokyo people.
During this time, autumn color is also here in Takao. When I arrived in early morning, this place is already crowded and I have to wait in very long line for cable car (no energy to walk actually hahaha).
Walking and hiking around with plenty of Japanese people up to the top of Takao, even I feel a bit tired on my leg but my mind is fully fresh with the weather and the color of autumn as always. Fujisan also show herself from the top of Takao that is very nice weekend for me :)
The way back to the train station also need very long wait but Takao, hiking and dango are reminding me to come back here again in the future … Yes, I will come back :D

This very huge event will be held in every 2 years and this time is at Tokyo Big Sight where you can find almost all big events here.
It’s also my first time to join Tokyo Motor Show and I’m quite excited what will be different than my country motor show.
Crowded everywhere. People here is much more than any other events I used to join. I can just flow following people haha :)
Tokyo Motor Show 2013 try to show future of the car that it will come with new energy consumption technology. More efficiency, more green and helpful to support mankind.
The car I love the most in this event is not and electric or hybrid car but It’s Nissan IDx Freeflow which looks very classic one and it also comes in Nismo version. Other brands like BMW and Mini are also my favorite.
Future of transportation you can see in many of concept cars here and one day, they will be one in your garage :D
Tokyo Motor Show 2013 will be shown at Tokyo Big Sight, Odaiba till December 1.It’s quite interesting to see one of our future there. Don’t miss it if you are in Tokyo :)
