  An Amazing Side of Tokyo

As we continue to watch the drama unfold in the aftermath of Japan’s earthquake, tsunami, and now nuclear crisis, I am constantly surprised at how unprepared the Japanese seem…. this is a country, after all, where the trains are never late and the parks have WiFi.
As a matter of fact, there are many great things about Japan – we are seeing it in the stoicism of many people – and how there has been no looting, or rioting. I wanted to take time today to remember how truly beautiful Japan is, since all we are seeing right now are images of fear and destruction.

Beautiful, right? As a matter of fact, our very own cherry blossom trees in Washington DC were given to us from Japan. The famous cherry blossom festival in DC runs March 26- April 11.

Have a truly great weekend.
