It was little chilly but we enjoyed looking at flowers.
The plums of this garden bloom from beginning of January to March.
During the Plum (Ume) season, there are events and food stands are held and open in the garden.

I went to Karuizawa (1 hour from Tokyo by Shinkansen express) as a day trip.
And I got a cute apple candy in tiny ceramic rice cooker that named “Touge no Ringo Ame”.(峠のりんご飴)
The original is famous bento in small ceramic rice cooker named “Touge no Kamameshi“(峠の釜めし), and this candy was made for 125 years anniversary of Oginoya the company of this bento.

The pottery became more small and cute for this special souvenir. I’ll re-use this as umeboshi-pickles pot.

There was a large window, and we were able to see a lot of trees from there.
We had very good time in peace to sat down in front of the window and just relaxed.

My sister and I went to Atami at Shizuoka pref. for an overnight trip to hot spring resort、Atami. Atami is very close to Tokyo. It takes less than 1 hour by a bullet train from Tokyo station. It is very easy to go on an overnight trip from Tokyo.

We stayed at a hotel, ‘Kai’ in Atami. The hotel is classical Japanese style, but it was renovated beautifully.
Also, we are able to have a relaxed time taking baths in hot springs at the hotel. There are two different baths including an open air bath and an indoor bath.
