Cheering Cherry Blossoms!

Maybe the unbelievable fact that Japan is the high-tech country, yet the grim ripper country due to the suicide rate in Japan is the highest among others. You can imagine how scary here is, in every year there are (about more than) 30.000 Japanese suicide due to dreadful depression. It was like one Japanese suicide every 15 minutes, everyday!

But don’t worry, that’s not in spring, the rate calmly decreasing every spring, that’s (what I believe) supposed to be the angel flowers they called S-A-K-U-R-A cheering them up, relieving the pain, and relaxing the nerves. Then, when that buds growing showing the pinky petals, coloring Japan atmosphere, make it the most awesome land on earth!

Extremely sure, the cherry blossoms really make you happy all day!

Here are some pictures of the cheering cherry blossoms in Shinjuku Gyoen Tokyo I captured this morning, enjoy it, feel the way they cheers you up!

Hey Wake up!, Spring is Coming!

Nyampe Jepang

Alhamdulillah…
Akhirnya aku telah sampai di Jepang kawan2… 25 september 2009 lalu
Sampai detik ini aku masih merasa terheran-heran kenapa aku tiba2 berada di sini. Tergabung dengan orang-orang dari negara lain dalam Young Scientist Exchange Program 2009-2010.
Dan Tokyo Institute of Technology benar-benar kampus yang menakjubkan. 16 pohon sakura berbaris rapi di depan main Building-nya!! Sayangnya ini mau musim gugur.
Lantas aku teringat dengan foto bunga sakura yang kupasang di desktop laptopku (yang sekarang kutinggalkan di Indonesia), tiap kali aku memandangnya,, indah sekali. Aku sangat mengaguminya. Hingga tiap kali menunggu loadingnya laptop-perjuangan itu, aku selalu berdoa “Ya Allah, aku ingin melihat bunga sakura secara langsung, bentaaar aja..”.
Dan mungkin doa itu beberapa bulan lagi akan terjawab, pada musim semi nanti.
Terima kasih Ya Allah
