Showa Memorial Park(昭和記念公園)

Well it was kind weather on Saturday couple weeks ago, so me and friends planned to have Momiji-gari. But rather than hunt for a place with lots of Momiji(Maple) trees, we chose to see Ichou(Ginko) Trees for this year. This time we went to Tachikawa where is only 20min by train from my place. There is a Park which is called Showa Kinen Koen(Showa Memorial Park).

This Park is quite big compare to Shinjuku Gyoen . That's why they provide bicycle rental inside the park. But before entering the park, we need to buy an entrance ticket first. It was 400Yen for adult, 80 for Child. Besides Bicycle/Unicycle, it also has BBQ venue, futsal court, boat for rent, etc. Please check here for the detail.

After entering the park, the first thing we do was looking for the place to have lunch. We brought bento, bought it on the way to the park. I love to have lunch in the outdoors with its beautiful scenery. But i think having lunch under Ginko Trees was not a good idea, cause its fruits smell like "something" that i can't describe :D (Some people said its smell like *sorry* Dog Poo, vomit, old cheese, etc) So, i need to remind myself for not having lunch under Ginko Trees next time.

But i enjoyed to see the color of Ginko, took a lots of picture in this area. It was reminding me about my childhood dream when i read Manga. I always like to draw Ginko Leaves, though i never knew the tree and its color in real before i came here. I just love the shape, don't know why~

After enjoying Ginko Tree, we move to another spot. There was fountain, playground, lake, and so many other interesting spot. Too bad we didn't have chance to enjoy all the spots, because we only had short time before dark. It is closed at 16:30 in winter. Maybe i'll visit this park again on next Spring ;)

Please enjoy a few pictures i took that day.

This last lovely picture was taken by my friend and i make it a lil bit colorful. Love it ♡

Letting Go

"Letting go of someone dear to you is hard,
but holding on to someone
who doesn't even feel
the same is much harder.
Giving up doesn't mean you are weak!
It only means that
you are strong enough to let go!"

Shibazakura - Hitsujiyama Park, Chichibu

In Japan, spring is identical with Sakura(Cherry Blossom). But for this year, we tried to find another kind of Sakura and i got information about this place in the station. And at the same time, my friend was planning to go there too. So here we are.... in Chichibu, Saitama~ looking for sakura Field(not trees) aka Shibazakura. This park's name is Hitsujiyama Koen(羊山公園). And effected by not a good weather during this year Spring, the flowers was not blooming at the same time and not even had chance to full bloom. The snow was falling one week before we went there, made this field covered by snow for 2-3days. That's why some part of the flower's field was dying when we got there :(

権現堂堤-Gongendou Tsutsumi

I've been dreaming for a long time to see this Yellow Field. And last week i decided to see this one in Gongendou Koen - Satte, Saitama. Feel fascinated from the first time because i never look something like this before :) Colorful place with rapeseed color(Yellow), soft cherry blossoms with pink and blue sky in upperside. FYI, Cherry blossom festival is always held during late March until early April. So don't forget to check this place if you come to Japan Next Spring.

Rapeseed has pungent smell and i don't really like it. And after an hour walk, i felt like i got hay fever because so many pollens in the air.

Another Cherry blossoms path....
