Construction (round 2)

 construction in the foreign section of Aoyama bochi

This shot of the 2nd phase of construction was taken from the road at the South end of the Foreign Section, looking West down the path passing under the early blooming cherry tree . (The stump of an uprooted tree is on the bottom right. The trunk of the early blooming cherry can be seen in the top left.)

The second round of construction will improve visibility and access to the plots and stones through the removal of greenery and benches, and laying of cement walkways.

The construction will be completed at the end of February 2008 at a cost to taxpayers of nearly 45 million yen. See a close up of the sign.

This view is of a space that had a bench and was full of bushes right next to the spot where we hold hanami. We'll just have to wait and see what it looks like in early April when the cherry blossoms open.
