Spring Storm
It was a stormy day today, and in many places we had to say goodbye to the cherry flowers at their best time...
Strong winds blew off the beautiful sakura petals...

Hida-Takayama may be one of those places.The cherry blossoms there had just started to be in full bloom.

今日は嵐のお天気。一番いい時を迎えた桜の花にさよならしなければいけない地域も。

飛騨高山もそんな地域の一つかもしれません。やっと満開になりかけているというのに。

Summer??
In our city, the flower buds of cherry blossoms are still hard and not open. But in Okinawa, sunflowers are in full bloom!!
It's summer already there rather than spring!

私たちの街では桜の花もまだつぼみは固く花も開いていないのに、なんと沖縄ではひまわりが満開なんだそう!
春というより、もう夏なんですね!!

Sakuramochi
Have you ever had Sakura-mochi?
Sakuramochi (桜餅) is a very traditional Japanese sweet! The sweet pink-colored rice cake (mochi) with a red bean paste (anko) in the center are so tastiful, and it's wrapped in a pickled cherry blossom (sakura) leaf. You can eat the leaf as well. (It's a bit salty, and goes very well with the sweet mochi.)

桜餅を食されたことはありますか?
ピンク色の餅にあんを包み、桜の葉っぱで巻いてある日本に昔からある和菓子です。葉っぱも食べられますよ!葉っぱの塩味が甘いお持ちとよく合います!
