Spring Arrives in Tokyo

It is obvious that spring has arrived here in Tokyo. Most people will eagerly anticipate the return of the lovely cherry blossom. There are festivals, picnics, specially themed drinks and cakes - all for the celebration of the cherry blossom arrival.

Certainly, as for new beginnings, it is also the start of the new school year here, as well as the usual time for batches of new entry-level employees to begin their new life of employment.

As much as I appreciate and enjoy the cherry blossoms - their delicate leaves high above me, or scattered on the ground like a pink carpet leading me on a path of joy - I also enjoy another spring ritual...

The return of outdoor grooming rituals of the city peacock...
