With Karl, Nagender, and Jeong-Seon, I visited Tottori sand dune, which is the only sightseeing spot in Tottori according to a guide book named "Lonely planet".
The dimension of the sand dune is a few kilometer scale. There are decent amount of Japanese tourists. I was happy to see those people because they prove that I live in a place that is worth to visit.

With Karl, I went to Utsubuki park at downtown Kurayoshi. A lot of people were there to enjoy cherry blossoms. We saw only three non Japanese. It seems that Misasa is more international than Kurayoshi. There are a lot of temporal junk-food shops. They are part of cherry-blossoms season.
Kurayoshi invited a hip-hop band to the festival because vocal guy was grown in Kurayoshi. It was a pity that their crappy music ruined the atmosphere.
In the evening, we went to a festival run by Misasa. Because the target of the festival is not local people but hot-sprint visitor, they are serious. Japanese drums, Japanese three-string guitar, and Japanese traditional songs. I like Misasa's festival more than Kurayoshi's.

The cherry blossoms are getting open and open everyday. I like this waiting-phase the best because I do not have to worry to loose nice flowers. Today there was a HANAMI party under cherry blossoms right next to the main river.
I misunderstand "comment moderate option" as "comment modify option". Now anyone can put comment without moderation.

Japanese likes cherry blossoms. A new school year starts from April with fullly opened cherry blossoms. A flower means cherry blossom in Japan.
I can see cherry blossoms from my new office. They are 5%. I cannot wait to see fully opened cherry blossoms because I have not seen them five years.
