In between naps, I scoured the city for more hidden coffee gems, so I'll have to share my newfound secrets sooner or later. Today, I filled my body with enough caffeine to last me until next year. I also found myself near Meguro River, and sneaked a peek at the blooming cherry blossom buds, shyly appearing, some of them even in full bloom. Despite a cold winter, cherry blossoms showed up a full week earlier than planned, therefore re-structuring and kickstarting hanami (flower-viewing picnics) plans, despite the (still) chilly temperatures.
The upcoming days are filled with goodness: my dear friend Sophia visiting from Australia (hope we don't fall into a sushi coma like last year), some quality time with friends during hanami, warmer weather, lazy mornings, a Tokyo getaway, and some fun work projects. I still adore my (not-so-new) apartment- I've never loved a home that much in Japan.

|This Pocky panda cracks me up. He's the "Vacation Panda". Bit early, no?|
