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.

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.

I just came back from a nice bike ride along the Nakagawa. The weather today is beautiful. The cherry trees are mostly no longer in full bloom. Some are, but most are half empty (half full?) with sakura falling all around while cycling. It was very pleasant.
Here are a couple of photos, and one slo-mo video of the sakura petals falling. The video runs a bit long. I should really trim it. But it looks so nice and dreamlike in slow motion.
Oh – and the ride took about 30 minutes and burned 265 calories!
