Kameido Tenjin Shrine, Tokyo
Originally built in 1662, pattering after Dazaifu in Kyushu, the park of this shrine has been one of the most popular spots for the wisterias and apricot flowers since the Edo era.

Received my initial postcard from Japan, courtesy of Atsushi from Tokyo. It features a lovely purple or lavender theme, showcasing beautiful wisterias. I can't help but wish to have those flowers in my dream garden, though I'm not sure if that will ever come true.

Blakeney harbour offers safe sailing and the bustling quayside, where rows of boats are always to be seen, presents a colourful scene.

I received my second postcard from the United Kingdom, courtesy of Mavis. Observing the boats in the picture reminded me of a memorable experience during a vacation at our maternal grandparents' place. I recalled riding a small boat, which was both awesome and thrilling. However, since I don't know how to swim, it was also somewhat scary as I couldn't shake off the feeling that the boat might sink at any moment.
