”Tsukimi” is a Japanese traditional festival which is held to view the harvest moon. There is no a party held given the circumstance, but still you can enjoy looking up the sky and appreciate the beauty of a full moon.
My family and friends family went to Mt. Fuji to enjoy camping in early this summer. We could make wonderful memories before a state of emergency was declared.
Tokyo Marathon 2021 would be held in October but postponed to March 2022 due to state of emergency in Tokyo. Tokyo Olympic could be held but Tokyo Marathon cannot? Okay, now I have another 6 months for extra training.
Our company has TPM activities.

I usually work from home, and today work at Tokyo office. Then, I went to the park with my colleague for lunch. We enjoyed delicious food, fresh air and comfortable splashes under 35 deg C! Keep social distance!
“Hanami” is a Japanese tradition of welcoming spring. The literal meaning is “viewing flowers” and enjoying cherry blossoms is an old Japanese custom (that’s been around for over a 1000 years). Hanami is like a picnic to enjoy under the cherry blossoms. People get together for this short period of time and enjoy food and drinks. Many people go early in the morning to secure a spot. However, given the Covid-19, we are not allowed to (or at least, not encouraged to) do “Hanami” last year and this year, so we, Communications held the “Online Virtual Hinami” session with our colleagues via Teams, setting our own favorite cherry blossom pics as our background scene, and get together to chit chat. We all talked about “Where is your favorite hanami spot?” or “Where did you take that photo?” and had great time together.
When speaking of the spring in Japan, you cannot help but speak about sakura or cherry blossoms. These fragile, short-lived flowers are the center of attention for a few weeks in March and April throughout the country.
"If sakura did not exist,
How quiet would it be
How calm could I have lived this season."
This poem, written by the famous Ariwara no Narihira, states that, if the cherry blossoms did not exist, he would not have been excited by the arrival of spring in the slightest; rather, he would have been able to enjoy a very peaceful, but dull, life.
Beauty, graciousness, transience, new life. The sakura have been the flower of the spring in Japan for these reasons. When visiting Japan after the Covid-19 pandemic is over, please make sure of seeing the cherry blossoms at least once in your life, the sight of them may inspire new understandings of Japanese culture and sprits.
