I tried a time-lapse video of walking from my house to the Nakagawa and back – about 1 km away. The whole trip was about 30 minutes, condensed to about 30 seconds. All I did was leave my iPhone in my pocket.
I don’t think I would actually call this a “success.” Maybe if the camera was pointed straight ahead the whole time it would seem a little less “psychedelic” and chaotic. If you have problems with sensory overload I don’t recommend watching this video.
But what the hey – it’s recorded, so online it goes!
I got back home a few hours ago. Monta seemed happy to see me. I noticed some sakura were still in bloom, so used my reserve strength to go on a bicycle ride along the Nakagawa. Most trees have had half or more of the cherry blossoms fall, but some are still in full bloom.

Cathy and me, driving over this morning to my mother’s place. Just a 4 second video. With apologies to La La Land.
There were almost no sakura in bloom yet, but a couple of trees had started. If you click on the photos you can see them larger.
, and there were a few nice blossoms. It’s still a bit early.
