Blowin’ in the Spring Wind

It was rather warm all day yesterday. So I took a walk.

I visited Kitano Tanmangu (北野天満宮) shrine, and saw the beautiful plum flowers. They were lovely and very graceful.

After visiting the shrine, I stopped by a confectionary store “Panda No Sanpo (ぱんだの散歩, Panda’s Walk) and bought a dish of cute dumpling skewers in the picture above. I had these adorable dumplings at a nearby park and when I finished I found myself feeling very happy and relaxed.

After that, I enjoyed watching a lot of spring flowers along the walk again, and I felt that spring was about to arrive. Cherry trees were embracing their buds which were almost burst into bloom. At some places, I even saw the early blooming cherry flowers.

Spring in Kyoto is wonderful. Maybe next week, Kyoto will be in its prime time of spring. It is truly worth to see.
