“Knowing others is wisdom;
Knowing the self is enlightenment;
Mastering others requires force;
Mastering the self needs strength.
.
He who knows he has enough is rich.
Perseverance is a sign of will power.
He who stays where he is endures.
To die but not to perish is to be eternally present.” Lao Tsu in Tao Te Ching v. Thirty-Three.

Early morning tea and meditation; just me, my tea and the sounds of birds chirping before sunrise today. .

Take me back to this magical moment in Kawaguchiko when we had afternoon tea under Sakura trees by the lake with a spectacular view of Mt. Fuji.

Wishing we were still in Kyoto and taking an afternoon tea break at Kagizen while waiting for our flight back to LA. .

On our third day in Hakone, Mt. Fuji was hiding in the clouds. We made a short stop at #owakudani, walked in a serene and wonderful park by Ashinoko-ko where we met an art student from Tokyo who was drawing from this spot, then went for soba lunch at Shinsho Soba.it was a relaxing day

We said good bye to Kyoto on Wednesday and took Shinkansen to Odawara. We rented a car and are staying in Hakone. The weather has been perfect since we arrived.  We can even see the top of Mt. Fuji from our room.

Yesterday we drove toward Kawaguchiko on an absolutely beautiful and clear day with Mt. Fuji in clear view the entire way.  Fuji-san looked absolutely majestic. We felt immensely blessed. #mountfuji #fujisan #hakone #fujikawaguchiko #sakura #cherryblossom #travelphoto #beautifulplaces #japan

The wind and rain in Kyoto had blown away most of the fragile Sakura. However, late-blooming cherry trees still can be seen in some areas. Here are a few shots of stunning Yaezakura, double-petalled type of cherries, on the ground of Sanjusangendo Temple that I took yesterday.  4.11.2018.

Spring matcha Nodoka with the husband and my mom at Ippodo’s Kaboku Tearoom this morning. We’re then spending a few hours checking out two shops that we really like in this neighborhood: Kamiji Kakimoto for Japanese handmade paper and @zohiko.
