The Best Season Ever in Japan!

Hi there!

How have you been? I still have had a really bad cold and can’t stop coughing…….. Cough, cough, cough…….

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine lives in Tokyo came up, and I took her to Kyoto!  That’s because it’s the best season ever for us to enjoy viewing leaves changing!!!

It’s my first time to see her in person in 4 years. We used to go to the same porcelain school for years, but after I moved to Osaka, I quit the school. Since then I hadn’t met her for a while.

We had a great time in Kyoto!!

Since the day was clear and fine, it was the best day for me to take a lot of photos.

I hope you can enjoy the Japanese leaves changing season through my post!

The place where I took my friend is called, Arashiyama, and it’s very popular in spring and fall.  When you come to Arashiyama in spring, you can enjoy viewing cherry blossoms and it’s a completely different scenery from this one.

This time everything here is red, and at that time everything here is PINK!

I love the place and it reminded me of Hayao Miyasaki movies a lot.

I am planning on going back to my previous porcelain school in Osaka again next year. I am really looking forward to it.

I asked my friend if she could come up again in spring. I hope she can make it. Then, I can take her here again to enjoy viewing cherry blossoms!!

      Hi, Helga.

      Thank you as always to the comments! I am feeling better. Thanks for the concern.

      I saw you had Peter at home on Facebook. I saw Fillipe on another my friend’s wall as well. I think Thailand has a lot of world famous artists right now.

      I am looking forward to seeing you in person again in March! I am also busy for painting for the Thai convention. I want to show my best pieces!!!

      Have a great holiday season with Robert! Please say hello to him!!
