Yesterday, Satoshi had the day off and we had an errand at our ward office.

Afterwards, I went to see if Torikyu had the bento I have been wanting to try.

Luckily, they had it.

Grilled chicken, tempura pumpkin and tempura shishito, a tender seasoned bamboo shoot, tsukudani, picked ginger, nori and shibazuke.

So good! The grilled chicken reminded me of the teriyaki chicken my Dad used to grill for dinners.

I'm glad I got to try this and hope to get it again in the future.

On our way home, this tree caught my eye.
It was an early blooming sakura (cherry).

The weather has been so warm that I guess a lot of trees have started to bloom.

Hope there will be some sakura to see in March as well.

I guess that must be the Kawazuzakura that we went to see 2 whole years ago! In Kawazu!

I don't know if you heard but Moderna is making a new version of the vaccine to try to protect against the variants. I hope it will be out by the time I'm eligible for a vaccine in probably another month. Even though I want to get a vaccine, I'm ok with waiting to see what newer versions might be approved. However, if Japan says we can come again....I'll take anything!
