My favourite season, back in early April when it was all magical, cheerful and beautiful. I took the courage to go down to to Nakameguro although for some years now I have only seen the cherry blossoms in Nakameguro from the station platform but soon after I started walking along the canal I could not cope with the crowd so I walked away from it towards Meguro along the canal Meguro-gawa. It doesn't take so long before you are free from the busy area, the canal gets so much wider and it feels nice. (See my post from 2011 to see the Nakameguro sakura) It was meant to be a quick stop after my dentist visit but it was hard to stop and I kept on walking to Shirokanedai past Meguro taking so many pictures. It was really beautiful.

人ごみに耐えられずここ何年かは中目黒の桜は駅のホームからのちらっと見にしていたのですが、思わず途中下車で下へ降りてみたのです。こんなに混んでも浮ついてもいなかった「あの頃はよかった〜」系の思いを引きずりすぎているワタシには、やはり難しくて、歩き始めて間もなく早歩きで遠ざかることを決意。駒沢通りを越えればあっという間に人ごみはなくなり、それと同時に行き違う人たちの年齢も上がり、広い空も見える。ホッとして、ゆっくり、じっくり、桜を楽しむにはやっぱりこうでなくては、と。来年は中目黒に間違って降りることはない、と思う。(あの頃はよかったバージョン、過去の記事はこちら
