Japan Time

The first blue sky day in a long time.

It's rainy season here in Japan. Which basically means I haven't seen the sun in months.
Okay, maybe not months, but for a long time.
But today, after so many dreary days, the sun graced Shizuoka Prefecture with its presence and I must say, we were very happily reunited.
I couldn't waste the sunshine by staying in my apartment all day, so on my way home from my Japanese lesson, I made a detour to Mochimune. I've passed it hundreds of times on the train and have always seen the ocean over the tops of the train passengers' heads across from me, but today was my first time to actually stop and check it out.
There's a little beach about a five minute walk from the station, so I relaxed there for a while, read a book, and of course, took photos. You can see that I've really missed the blue sky since it's the subject of pretty much every photo!

And here's a little rice farm across the street from my apartment. Rice just looks better against a blue sky:

Hey Brianna Manatee! I'm glad the sun was back for you! I don't know how I'm going to survive another winter here with no sun. But I will, somehow, lol. I guess I'll have a new baby, that will help. Your pictures are, of course, beautiful! Hey, can you do me a favor and email me please? I would like to talk to you about something. Thanks! korilavire@hotmail.com

I know exactly how you felt. It's been sunny and hot here the past few days in Tokyo as well and when I saw the sunshine (which I thought I will never see again) was like, welcome back mate!
On Sunday I went out to the park and took like 20 pics of blue sky. So you are not the only one.
