Hello from Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun! We are staying this week at the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo and experiencing the cherry blossom festival in the city. The last 2 days have been all about strolling through the gardens and spending our days drinking Sake under Sakura. And after spending 36 hours in Tokyo, may I say that there is no time prettier than this to visit the city.
