Ume (P.mume) in Nezu shrine
It has been getting warm here in Tokyo, and Ume flowers are in full bloom now.
Two weeks ago, Lee and I went to the Nezu shrine. The main building (Haiden) and the big gate (Roumon) have been under the restoration, so most of the architectures are covered with white vinyl sheet, but the Ume flowers are welcoming the visitors with sweet smell.
Turtles did sunbathing.
According to the official site of the Nezu shrine, the restoration will be finished this September.
