White Plum

It's been still very cold in Osaka and we had some snow yesterday. However, the plum flowers have started to bloom.

Red Heart

What a unique Valentine's Day display!  Bamboo trees are decorated in an artistic way.
I found it at Nunobiki Herb Garden in Kobe.

Osaka Bay

This is the western view from the Umeda Sky Building today. It was very cold with a strong wind. But I could enjoy the best view from the open-air observatory on the top. Far away you can see the Akashi Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world (3911 m), which connects  Awaji Island to Honshu main island.

Kobe China Town

Took this picture in the China Town in Kobe three days ago. Red lanterns and red flags are everywhere to celebrate the New Year there.
