As previously stated, seasons are big in Japan. One way to celebrate them is to go out with your loved and liked ones to view blossoms in spring. Cherry blossom viewing is very famous, but there are also other blossoms you might view as well. In this exact case, we went to a park that was supposed to have great plum blossoms to view.
Onto the story: we choose to go to Shibakoen (Shiba park), because I had read that they were a good place for viewing plum blossoms and it was close to Tokyo tower, which we hadn’t checked out yet. We got to the park and looked for blossoms. We found none. It seemed to be the dead of winter still. The closest we could find on most trees were buds, that in the coming weeks might become blossoms. We obviously didn’t have time to wait around for that.
We searched around and after 30 or so minutes, we found TWO trees with blossoms. We then proceeded to take tons of pictures of that one tree.
After we finished the photo shoot with the two trees that had blossomed, we decided to make the most of it and went to the observation deck of Tokyo tower!
We finished it all off with some curry and an ice cream waffle at a place in the tower.
