The park is very huge. Nemophila is not the only plant there, but there are lots and lots of plants of which I have never heard the name.
I am sure that one day is not enough to look every nook and corner of the park.

I went to a Japanese noodle soup shop and a dumpling shop with my old friend the other day.
I enjoyed the reunion very much.
I worked with him for several years at my company around 1998; he was a software engineer at that time.
He got married in his young age, divorced after several years, changed occupations many times, once lived in the US, ran a company and bankrupted it within a few years, worked as an owner of three houses, met a fraud and was robbed of about half a million US dollars, married again at the age of 60 with a single mother with kids, now he is planing to work as a driver.

It took us about two hours from home to the park.
It was a rather long drive though, well worth visiting.
Even top season of nemophila had been over, tens of hundreds of people were visiting and seemed to enjoy walking along hill trails surrounded by millions of light blue colored flowers.

The restaurant is located on the top floor in Tobu department store in Utsunomiya city.
The restaurant is famous for its tofu cuisine.
We ordered yu-doufu or boiling tofu and yuba.
Yuba is also called tofu skin, a food product made from soybeans.
It is made, at first boiling soy milk, a skin forms on the liquid surface, then take the skin. That is the yuba.
The restaurant offered us perfect tofu dishes; you should not miss them when you are in Utsunomiya city.

My wife and I went to a museum to see an exhibition of a Japanese painter.
The painter was not so famous that I forgot the name of him, haha.
We enjoyed seeing the paintings and walking about the park of the museum.
The picture below shows beautiful t falling cherry blossoms near a sculpture.

We went to hot spring, after that, had dinner one day.
We rarely have had enough time to talk about so much of things, such as work, life, future and these things before.

Cherry blossoms were in full bloom last week in my town Utsunomiya.
I took those pictures near my office and tennis courts where I usually use.
I took the video while I was riding on a bike.

Prawn curry seemed very spicy, but it was mildly flavored and delicious. Talking about rice, it is almost impossible to eat none-sticky long rice in Japan. I think that type of rice goes very well with Indian curry.

This is the room I stayed in Austin.
The room was spacious, clean and quiet, a bit old though.
It fitted well for relaxing and working with a PC.
Since it had a small kitchen with kitchen utensils, I cooked light meal, Japanese noodle soup, as for my late-evening snack.

I ordered local brand beer, beefsteak and prawn, and green salad.
Everything was delicious, We enjoyed the food, conversation and its atmosphere very much.
