Spring has come! Now Tokyo is full of flowers. If you visit a park or a shrine in Tokyo, you can see various flowers. Especially Ume (Japanese apricot) is the first tree to blossom and is beautiful. Yushima Tenjin is famous for Ume blossoms. So I visit Yushima Tenjin to see effects of Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident. Though I have never found any impact of the accident, I think it is important to see creatures of Tokyo because they teach us the environmental health.
