Before CHERRY, kyoto will be filled with PLUM blossom!!

We know that thousands of people coming to see cheery blossom's beautiful sceneary in Kyoto around end of March, but don't really know that plum blossoms come to their best season in March right before it, and that they create as beautiful and amazing view as cheery blossoms do. Tomorrow, plum blossom's festival is taken place in Kitano-Tenmangu(北野天満宮). If you are already in Kyoto, why don't you drop by there:)

Katsushika Hokusai Exhibition is going on.

Katsushika Hokusai(葛飾北斎) exhibition is being held in Kyoto History and Culture Museum until 25th March as this year is 250th year anniversary of the birth of him.
If you know him, I am happy. He is a legend of Ukiyoe-artist, well-known in over the world for Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji (冨嶽三十六景). The one below is one of pictures of it. Its view is from Kanagawa offshore. Every picture of him is very vivid and has uplifting feeling. Once you see it, you can never forget it.
