Walking around town recently, I started noticing a heavy scent in the air almost like lilacs. And then I started seeing along many of the roads through town, the trees were blooming heavily with clumps of small purple flowers.
Curiosity piqued, I did a bit of googling and found that it is sendan-- Chinaberry trees.
I remembered a song off the second Mew album called Chinaberry Tree, and laughed, thinking how I thought it was something they had made up. But here it is, a real tree, and all over the place here in Hiroshima.
And it smells amazing.
