At the place I am working for, we form a group every 6 years and they disband after 6 years. I joined the team three years ago and this is the 6th year so our team will disband on the 31st of March. We almost finished our jobs so we went on a short trip to Tokyo as to celebrate and commemorate our success as a team.
So we went to Tokyo, did some sight-seeing and then we had a little party on a traditional Japanese style cruiser. So this is the cruiser :
We went on a boat and there was a traditional cook aboard. He cooked and served us nice Sashimi and Tempura! Nothing beats the tastes of tempura being cooked right in front of you! We can pretty much drink anything we want, from cold beer to bourbon on the rocks! And the scenery from the boat! I am sorry that I am inept at taking photos so they really can’t show you how beautiful they were; a line of cherry trees with their blossoms at their best lighten up by a series of traditional Japanese lanterns were quite beautiful!! Especially there was a dense fog yesterday and those lights and blossoms could be seen only in adumbration but they added to the rather illusional atmosphere. Hope I am better at taking pictures.
Usually, in Tokyo, next week cherry blossoms are at their best but this year it is a week early. The skipper of the boat told me we are lucky because people think next week they can see the best blossoms and mad reservations for boats for the next week but there are few reservations this week because they were not able to foresee that. But actually this week we have the best blossoms and they might be gone by the end of this week. I think we are lucky!!
