I took this photo at Kita Asaba Sakura Zutsumi in Saitama, where I celebrated the arrival of spring on the day of the vernal equinox. In my country, we celebrate this time with natural colors and spend time with loved ones. The ritual symbolizes how nature becomes colorful at this time of the year, and so we celebrate it. In Japan, people also enjoy this season with their loved ones. While I was there, I saw a mother and her daughter with their family, having a great time and taking photos as memories. This entire scene reminded me of my childhood, when my mother also embraced me with the same emotion that is reflected in this image.

This place is often compared to the renowned Tokyo station by many tourists. It used to be the headquarters of the Ministry of Justice but now serves as the Institute of Legal Affairs and the Legal Library. The Meiji period construction was designed by two competent German architects. Despite being damaged in World War II, it was successfully restored. The symmetrical and majestic architecture of the building is simply breathtaking. The European style of the Meiji period is beautifully represented in this structure and looks even more stunning during the rare snowfall in Tokyo. Exploring new places in this bustling city during the snow season is an experience worth having.
