Spring is coming and I’m a white rabbit.
I have excuses. The past two weeks have been some of the most hectic in recent memory (this post should have been posted 10 days ago, whoops), as I’m finally quitting my current job, and preparing for the new job has been pretty tight in terms of deadline. Now, all is well, dust is settling down, and I can even slow down a little bit, and even post here more often? Hopefully… I always feel that I’m neglecting this blog compared to its French counterpart. But as I got a serious upgrade in terms of work and overall pace of life, I should now have the time and energy to write this blog in a satisfying manner for everyone.
A few weeks ago, I went to Shikoku Mura where I don’t go nearly as often as I should go, and while we were still in the middle of winter, Spring started to show signs of its upcoming arrival here and there.
It was a few days before Hina Matsuri and this is probably the largest Hina Kazari (“doll stage”) that I have ever seen.
It was located in Shikoku Mura’s Kabuki Theater:
Daffodils everywhere, for a moment then, it felt like Ogijima.
Plum blossoms, the sign that Winter is almost over.
These are also plum blossoms, even though sometimes,
tourists tend to confuse them for cherry blossoms.
OK, now that spring has been properly announced, the other announcement is that you should brace yourselves for the Setouchi Triennale 2016, this blog will be almost entirely dedicated to it in the next few weeks.
