This an entrance to a small Shinto Shrine in Otawara, Tochigi-ken. I took this photo on my last trip there.

Spring has sprung in Los Angeles. These photos are from two weeks ago. I think the top two photos are plum blossoms but I am not certain. The bottom one is from in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles.

I found this house during a walk around Otawara, Tochigi-ken. I liked all the green vegetation around the entrance but what really caught my eye was the mail box. Sorry you can't make it out in the photograph but the mail box says U.S. Mail. The front door and little parking spot are a mere few feet from the road. I like how homes in Japan are closer to the roads, especially the quieter, narrower roads. It gives it a more intimate feeling for me.
