Sayama and Tama Lake

Sayama Lake (Unfortunately Mt. Fuji was not very well visible)

EN: The winter is about to end and together with it also the unfortunate weather. I am not a big fan of cold, even though I should be used to it, considering where I come from. But anyway, the spring is close and since today was a bank holiday in Japan (National Foundation Day), me and my friend decided to visit the Tama and Sayama Lakes. The weather was great, but a little bit windy, the whole trip was approximately 60km long, departing from Nakano. All of the pictures were taken with my phone, which reflects their quality. And, as you can see on one of them, the hanami season is getting close as well, we need to wait just a few more weeks and there will be many posts related to sakura trees in bloom.

SK: Zima je konečne na ústupe a spoločne s ňou aj dni nešťastného počasia. Nie som veľkým fanúšikom zimy a to aj napriek tomu, že pochádzam z miesta, ktoré je ňou pravidelne navštevované. V každom prípade, jar je už predo dvermi, Japonci jej príchod dokonca oslávili už pred viac ako týždňom a vzhľadom na to, že dnes bol štátny sviatok (National Foundation Day), vybrali sme sa s mojím kamarátom na výlet opäť k dvojici umelých jazier Tama a Sayama. Celý spiatočný výlet bol približne 60km dlhý, s odchodom a návratom do časti Nakano. Všetky fotky pochádzajú z môjho telefónu, takže tomu zodpovedá aj ich kvalita. A ako vidíte na jednej z nich, sezóna hanami (na tomto blogu mám o nej popísané dosť) sa už taktiež blíži, musíme si počkať ešte niekoľko týždňov. Potom tu bude oveľa viac príspevkov týkajúcich sa rozkvitnutých čerešní sakura.
