Somehow this temple had never been on my must-visit list when I came to Tokyo, until I got inspired and curious by Brian's lovely photo story and Tomoko's article. I knew that there were some cherry trees around Zojo-ji, so I packed my camera on a beautiful day towards the end of March to check them out. The scene with salarymen and office ladies enjoying their bento underneath the blooming trees was great to watch and the blossoms were in a good 'mood' to act as a model.

Travelling abroad to discover new places, getting to know different cultures and learning foreign languages has always been my passion. I was born and raised in Germany; however, for a few years now I've been very lucky to be able to spend my life abroad. I lived for some time in England and Italy before moving to Japan in October 2009. It took me a while to adapt to this very different world; however, travelling up and down the country has helped me to not only adapt, but to actually fall in love with this country Japan. It has also reawakened my interest in photography, so whenever I get a chance I pack my camera and discover something new. Japan is full of beautiful but less well-known places. To make these more discoverable for everybody, I'm very happy to be able to share my stories and photography on this site, and open a world of extraordinary experiences, which would be difficult to find in a guidebook. For any queries regarding Tokyo as a travel destination or any of my published articles, please feel free to contact me.
