Weekend walks at Osaki Dam

Today was forecast to be 28c here in our town - it’s gone from feeling like winter would never end to feeling like summer is knocking down the door in a matter of weeks! Since the weather was so glorious we got out bright and early to check out the nearby Osaki Dam.

The area is known for being one of the area’s best spots to check out the cherry blossoms, and as of tomorrow they’ll also have the koinobori flags strung up across the water for Children’s Day in just a couple of weeks time!

Here are some of the views we had today!

Already looking forward to going back and enjoying those koinobori flags this coming week!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    Beautiful there! Love the last photo of the "dudes," as I call them.

    Looks lovely. Must be nice to have access to a place like that. I particularly like the third image.
