The snow!


Last weekend I went to KOGANEI PARK to see the beautiful cherry trees in full bloom. It was wonderful and crowded. The weather was wet but nice. Then it changed….

Yesterday – APRIL 8th – it snowed!

I am sure that you were as surprised as I was to see the snow flying yesterday. As I rode the train to Tochigi yesterday morning I looked up from my newspaper and my jaw dropped….. It was snowing heavily. As a Canadian I am used to snow. But as an expat living in Tokyo I am not. Luckily the snow neither lasted, nor did it accumulate on the ground.


How did you enjoy the early spring snow with the cherry trees blooming?


Last week I used the word DEMOLISH. Could you guess the meaning?

DEMOLISH: to destroy or break completely

The old house was demolished and a new one was built.
