Well, I’ve had that song stuck in my head for the past few days, and I would have to argue that right now, it is in fact NOT the most wonderful time of the year. In fact, I would go so far as to venture that this is the most UN-wonderful time of the year in Japan. It’s the weather that’s killing it for me. In December, one day the weather was beautiful and the next it was cold. It was a pretty decisive change. But now, the weather just keeps going back and forth.
On Monday, it was so warm that I barely needed my coat, but yesterday it was snowing in the morning and evening. I mean, for real, what is up with that? It’s really making me dislike Februaries in Japan. And this had been going on for a greater part of the month. Thankfully though, February is almost finished.
But then, I have to go through all of this weather nonsense in March as well. Spring- get your butt in gear and commit to Japan already! Don’t be shy, everyone here really likes you. I promise.
