Weather, what's happening??

The day before yesterday it was very hot.
During the day I can just walk with a shirt and jeans.

But yesterday and today, it's back to winter and needs
winter jacket and muffler to go outside...

According to the weather forecast, the golden week (the long holiday in Japan) will be very unstable weather :(
Well, at least tempretures finally become "2digits" in the morning...

Sakura still blooming

Because the weather is not stable in Kyoto this Spring,
Sakura is still blooming in many places.

Usually when Sakura bloom, the weather gets warmer then the flowers
end, but this spring the weather gets hot in one day then get
back to winter in next day...

Perhaps its something to do with global warming.
But thanks to that, we can still enjoy the flowers!
(However its little bit cold to enjoy the picnic under the tree...)

Tea Tasting

On 1st of April, we held Tea Tasting in our Ryokan.

Usually we do Tea Ceremony (Green Tea) in our Lobby,
but this time it's little different.
This time we focused on Teas drinked in Japanese daily life.

These are also classified as Green Tea but slightly different from
whats used in Tea Ceremony.

Also there are many kinds of Tea in this category and guests
who joined us were enjoying different taste and fragrances of Teas.
