One huge incentive to come to Japan was the opportunity to experience weather as it was meant to be experienced. Four distinct seasons: summer, fall, winter, and spring. Somehow, I have inherited Demeter's power and unwillingly carried the unpredictability of Texas weather to the land of the rising sun. I'm sorry.
Rain yesterday. Sunshine the week before. And no snow in sight. It truly is Texas in Japan. Please make it stop.
Searching for the best times to view the cherry blossoms? Japan-Guide has the answer.
Remember that the Golden Week holiday is fast approaching. Be sure to make your travel plans now. It's Okinawa for me.
