Inokashira Park

Last Monday, I took a stroll through Inokashira Park for the first time after enjoying a hardy avocado burger and potato wedges from Village Vanguard Diner near Kichijoji Station. I figured I had to work off the calories somehow. I made my way down to the lake where you’ll see ginormous swans and other vibrant paddle boats and row boats alike bumping into each other. It reminded me of when I went to the Philippines and was coerced into doing the painful job of rowing and crashing into other people repeatedly. But, I admit it was a little fun in all the humiliation of being uncoordinated.

The beautiful Sakuras hovered over the edges of the lake and dipped into it like how a waterfall goes right over a cliff. I highly recommend visiting Inokashira Park along with the many other picturesque mazes of nature all throughout Tokyo. This year about 30% of cherry blossoms were blooming by March 22nd and are now 80% gone (April 2nd). It was a good 11 days these beauties have served. And I can’t wait to see them next year.
