Kinda Spring

Since the calendar says spring is just around the corner, I changed the wallpaper and mascot on this page that way. Sakura, or cherry blossoms/trees, represent the image of spring in Japan. It's funny, unlike in other parts of Japan, that they are in full bloom in mid or late May in Hokkaido.

The mascot is Musha Ningyo, a warrior doll. They are displayed at some homes where there's a boy, or boys, on May 5, Children's Day. Most boys don't seem to care about them, though.

Hope you like them. :)
