I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

The first time I saw winter-blooming narcissus I was suprised. THe climate here is different from my home country, and the narcissus are super hardy, too, making it through light frosts.

3 million - that would be a sight to see. There is a place in Saitama too, that has a festival in January. Last year I didn't make it, hopefully this year!

They are one of the flowers that actually thrive during winter! December/January are the best time for them!
