                                  The Sakura blossoms were still budding when I went to Nara Park on March 31.
                    While leisurely strolling through Nara Park, I felt the softly falling rain and watched the ever widening ripples 
                                                               on the pond among the water lily pads.

                                             The color of these  water lily pads was  actually reddish brown 
                                       however, somehow the color turned to pink by my camera without any editing.    I do not know why...... 
                                                                                              March 31                                                                                 

                                             My camera made such a miracle art.I was not certainly disappointed,
                                                 and just added a little light on these photos as an edit.

                                                                                          Looks cold..... but spring is on the way.

                                                                 This is my favorite Japanese antique shop near Nara Park. 
                                                                     They also serve green tea to customers.                                        


                      They have a small garden arranged with the white stones and the old dying trees at the shop's side window. 
                                                      traditional Japanese aesthetic world..Wabi Sabi is here.

                                                This week, finally some early-bloom types of Sakura trees began opening.
                                       I looked cherry blossom forecast up and went to see the Sakura flowering in Kyoto.
