  Hanami at Ueno Park
by Sharrie

It's a time for cheers, for celebrations & for get-together with friends & loved ones.

In Spring time, the Japanese celebrates by eating & drinking under those beautiful cherry blossoms...
A time to catch up with friends on life, a time to get away from the routine & mundane work...
A time for joy & relaxation...

UENO PARK is one such place for this joyful season.
Besides being a park, it's also the site of various historical spots.
A few major museums, a zoo & temples are found here.

I've never been here even though I've been to Tokyo many times.
It's been said, you don't missed things which you've no idea of.
In this instance, it's very true.
Until last weekend...

Now, I know what I've missed in life.
Simple moments of sitting in the park & just watching the world goes by...
Moments where one spends with their loved ones.
Moments where it's a luxury to just sit still & let time does what it does best.

How is it that I've never realised this?!?!?!
