It was a cold rainy morning but stopped rainig later.
They say today is Day of Cherry Blossoms, sakura no hi (さくらの日) because of two reasons. One is from the sound and date : 3(さ: sa) x 9(くら: ku)=27. The other is from seventy two pentads, 桜始開 (sakura hajimete hiraku).
There was the announcement of blooming cherry blossom in Tokyo last week but there are only a few of them blooming under this cold weather.
We can expect longer cherry blissom viewing season this year.
