Spring is coming. Yeay. I’m waiting for this season. I really love when the sun is shining. But, even the spring is coming, the weather is still cold and the wind is still strong. I’m really excited to see cherry blossom. Almost everyday I took pictures of cherry blossom growth in the campus (Fig 1).

By the beginning of spring, there is special week, it’s Golden Week. We got a long holiday in Golden Week. Our laboratory organized Hanami party in that occasion. We cooked and made BBQ party under cherry blossom. Not only fun, but it’s also interesting. I got special grill spot with only vegetable and fish (halal food).

During Golden Week, I went to Goryokaku Park with my friends, one of landmark in Hakodate. This place is covered with cherry blossom during the beginning of spring, really beautiful. Many tourists come to Goryokaku Park (Fig 4). We spent time by eating under cherry blossom tree. I also tried cherry blossom ice cream and cherry blossom milkshake in Goryokaku Tower. Oishi. Fig 5 is the picture of Goryokaku Tower. If we went to the top of the Tower, we can see the star shape of Goryokaku Park that is covered by cherry blossom.

With my friends, I also went to Mt. Hakodate. We went there by using bus and tram. I found many interesting place in the lower part of Mt. Hakodate. We also went to the top of Mt. Hakodate by using ropeway. I enjoyed the night view of Hakodate from the top (Fig 6). It’s beautiful.

Overall, I got unforgettable moment during Golden Week.
In this spring, I just started my class. I am taking Japanese language and also Introduction of Fisheries Science class. Japanese language is not easy for me, but I try to learn. Actually, the class is fun. Everything is going with very well in this spring, not only the class but also my research. I also just started my research. It’s about protein isolate from tempe. I try to make food ingredient from tempe protein. Hope that I can learn many in here. Ganbatte!
