Well, it's been Spring

Well, it's been Spring in Japan for two days and I don't see any difference from winter yet.

The last day of winter was February 3, Setsubun. To celebrate the end of the season, you go to your local temple, and throw a handful of dried soy beans while chanting "In with the good luck, out with the devils."

More exciting than Punxsutawney Phil looking for his shadow.

So now it's Spring. Soon the plum trees will begin to blossom. When I see them, then I'll know Spring has really arrived. Until then, I'll turn up the heat and find some warm, fuzzy socks.
