Saturday, Satoshi started his next rounds of German language classes, so I had some time to walk around and check out the sakura on the top floor of Lucua.
They have a small Japanese garden here with about 3 sakura trees. Really beautiful when they are in full bloom.
The sun was playing hide and seek with the clouds...
After his class we caught the train to Hikone.
We checked out the keyaki michi which I've mentioned here.
And then walked around the Hikone castle grounds. There are a lot of areas you can check out without having to pay the admission.
We found this huge sakura tree in one of those spots.
Near a corner of the castle we also found this grove of sakura...so huge and beautiful!
Love the reflection on the water too.
It was even more beautiful lit up!
The weather is drizzly today. Hope the sun will come back soon!
