Spring is a gorgeous time in Japan, albeit short-lived before it suddenly gets unbearably hot in the early summer months. The cherry trees are not quite in bloom yet, but the days are longer and I just want to be outside all day, whether I'm running in early morning or wandering the streets before dusk.
A few days ago I sauntered around Omotesando 表参道, which is my favourite street in Tokyo. It's wide and lined with large Zelkova trees, and bordered with enough luxury boutiques to make a fashionista's head spin. Omotesando features some of the most interesting architecture in the city.
My friend and I enjoyed the sun on a late afternoon perched on the top of a building overlooking Aoyama and offering a spectacular view of the city, at a café named "Two Rooms". We sat outdoors on plush chairs, on a terrace right on the edge of the building, next to an infinity pool. It was a bit chilly but blankets were provided and it felt like an actual vacation.
In other news, I've been drinking colourful beverages and not wearing socks and painting my nails a pale yellow and staying up late at night but waking up at dawn to go running. It's springtime.
