Marvelous. The trees make me want to go to a cherry blossom party. Food, sake & increasing difficulty in composing haiku as the night wears on... :)

The smell of cherry blossoms (whether or not the fruit ever comes) is one of my favorite things on earth. Just a hint of the scent takes me all the way back to five years old, hanging out in Japan....

it was so special and a good reminder of what matters when someone rips you off.

haiku, sake and cherry blossoms are something to hang onto.

Laszlo. Japan at five? no wonder you are so (searches for adjective)....

there's no one adjective to describe Laszlo - but Japan at 5 does throw some light on the mystery that is Laszlo

love the pictures and the self portrait is a beaut

There's a mystery? I'm not doing it right....

I spent a couple years at a US Army base not far from Tokyo, from '73 to '75. Knee-high to a grasshopper as the saying goes, but they have really large grasshoppers in Japan.

I remember a few sights from there, but the smells are way more powerful. Cherry blossoms, tangerine orchards ... and on the downside, silk factories, paper mills, and the outdoor fishmarket with all the diesel fumes. Yikes.

Thanks bunches for taking me back to the top of this list. It's awesome to see you enjoying it, too.
