As an instructor, I often complain about the number of classes per week that my students attend, and I am forever urging them to practise more at home in between classes. It is important to me that they put in some practice, in order to consolidate what we do in class.
As I sat on a train in Tokyo early in the morning, crossing many bridges on my way to Narita Airport, I watched the sun rising in the east and the cherry blossoms coming into bloom just a little too late for me to enjoy the fullness of their spectacular annual pink and white decoration of Japan. Moving further from Tokyo, the rice paddies filled the spaces beside the train line. No land is wasted in Japan.
