After the massive earthquake and nuclear accident TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) has been putting power cut into operation to save the electric power.
It was started at 6:20 PM this evening, and I went to the road on the seaside after that.
There were some cars running on the road, but it was pitch dark without the power.
As I had the strong wind by the sea it sometimes rocked my car.
The black out was finished at 7:50 PM.
Today's picture is what I took in our garden. This is called Niwa-Zakura in Japanese, and it means Sakura in garden. But it is a different kind of tree from Sakura.
It has been still a little bit cold in these days, but spring is coming little by little here in Shimoda.
