    I thought that this should have it's place on the forum to highlight how very important this time of the year is to Japan. So now the 2021 Olympics mascot is inspired by the Cherry.

    I remember fondly the Tokyo Olympics of 64, where a good friend at the time competed and so as it comes around to Tokyo once again my love of Sport and trees are now combined.
    The theme tune of 'Tokyo melody' 1964 is also well ingrained in my memory. Type it into your music provider to have a listen.
