There was apparently exactly one cherry tree in Ueno Park today that was in bloom. It’s way too early for sakura blooming. But I saw this one today, surrounded by people taking photos.
If you click on the photos you can see them larger.
It was very nice weather again today, and I took another bike ride along the river. This time near sunset. Here are a few photos I took with 2x optical zoom mode on my iPhone. Somehow the zoom makes them more dramatic. The middle photo shows the Katsushika city sports center.

I had a meeting with somebody outside of Tokyo Station today. It was the first time I’ve been outside the Marunouchi exit of Tokyo station in a very long time. It’s quite impressive.
We met at a coffee shop at the Shin Marunouchi building. I didn’t bother taking a picture of that. It’s a pretty boring building.
But Tokyo Station’s Marunouchi entrance is a real landmark. It was built in 1914 and has quite and interesting history. You can read more about it here.
The Edogawa Fireworks are going on right now. I don’t have any super explosions or the climax here, but here is a couple of minutes I took from my 3rd floor veranda just before.
