I finally get everything done and ready to leave! I'll be arriving in NY on 29th. Thanks for the suggestions from you all. Now I am getting excited about the trip!
One thing I'll miss is cherry blossoms. The tree is something special to Japanese people. It symbolizes vicissitudes of life and we have a kind of parties around trees while it is in full bloom. Some trees started blooming, but I will surely miss them in the most beautiful states. But at least, I enjoyed a little bit of blossoms today.
