I’m thrilled to return to Japan this spring. We just caught the tail end of the cherry blossoms this week. These fleeting ethereal blossoms only make an appearance for about two weeks each year. Quite a contrast from my last Tokyo visit in December 2015 when I witnessed the city blanketed in bright red fall foliage.
