Thursday Snapshot: Ume Ice Cream at Osaka Castle
Ume ice cream at Osaka-jo. March, 2012
Ume (Japanese plum) blossom season is upon us. It might be a little early and ambitious, especially in light of the recent heavy snow here in Tokyo, but those little blossoms are a delight. This photo, taken at Osaka Castle two years ago, features the blossoms found in the ume orchard there along with a healthy serving of ume ice cream. Oh, yes. It was delicious.
