Kahotan Post Office: Spring Edition

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at  some of the photos that have been sent through to become my Twitter header for Spring 2016! You can find the previous Kahotan Post Office here: Kahotan Post Office: February 2016

The theme this time around is ‘Spring and Figures‘! 

Although the weather is still fairly cold here in Japan, looking through everyone’s photos warmed up my heart and got me into Spring mode in no time! A big thank you to everyone who sent in photos! (✿´ ꒳ ` )

As I have already announced on Twitter, the photo I have selected to use as my header this time around was this lovely photo from NIISHA! 

*Photo has been edited to better fit the Twitter header size.

Not sure if Link is teaching Miku how to sing, or the other way around (´◉◞౪◟◉)

━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─

Singing lessons out in the sun! ♪

Surrounded by flowers and other plants, the background alone creates the perfect place to sing!! The fact that Link is holding the Wind Waker makes me think he is the one doing the teaching this time around!

Isn’t it lovely being able to cross over different series and create all new situations like this with Nendoroids! ♡

Thank you for the lovely photo, NIISHA!

I’d love to put everyone’s photos up on the blog, but I don’t have the space or the time… so here are some others that really caught my eye! I’m sorry if your photo didn’t make it onto the blog! I promise I have looked through and enjoyed them all!! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Afternoon Walk

Mako and Guts enjoy the spring flowers! (ᅌᴗᅌ* )

Spring is in full bloom so I take Nendoroids with me outside more.

It’s really fun to take photos of them in everyday life.

It reminds  me why I like the character and makes me fall in love with  them all over again.

A quick photo to capture the everyday life of Mako out on a walk with Guts! I also love the flowers trying their hardest to bloom in the background even though it’s still a little chilly! ♪

❀ Sakura Hanami with Yamato ❀

A very intricate photo with lovely effects applied to it that really make it stand out! From the falling petals, the splash of the water at her feet and the gleam in her eyes… I could stare at this photo for ages!

The title of this photo is ‘Plum and Sakura’!

The plum trees in my garden recently started flowering, so I decided to take some photos with Sakura! They are both so beautiful!

Sakura-san’s brave yet adorable appearance looks lovely as ever! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡

This photo is taken by me in Asakusa during my holiday to Japan last year April. Spring is a nice season and the sakura are beautiful.

I also love the sakura in Asakusa!! It’s the perfect time and place to take a Nendoroid out on a walk! It looks like Kyoko is really enjoying the scenery as well!! (*´ω`*)

Sakura Miku: “It’s nearly Spring!! Come on little flower buds!!”

I’m sure the buds will be budding in no time after hearing Sakura Miku-san cheer them on! That gentle smile really has a warm, Spring feeling to it! ٩(๑òωó๑)۶

Time to start pruning for Spring!

Even Hoozuki is busy with his goldfish plants.

Hoozuki: Don’t worry my babies~ I’ll take good care of you~ (^з^)-☆

I swear for just a second Hoozuki had a smile on his face as he was getting ready to prune his plants! The details of the little items and room around him are gorgeous! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

I went out to see some Spring flowers with Taishi! ( ´͈ ꒳​ `͈ )

They all looked so beautiful… but they’re not for eating, Taishi!!

The long stems of the flowers matching with the long crown on Taishi’s head makes for a very interesting scene! Make sure you keep an eye on him!! ꒰◍´Д‵◍꒱◞

Last year when I was moving jobs overseas I had a long weekend to go see the sakura!

It was also the time I had just got my new Sakura Miku-san, so I took her out with me to enjoy the sakura together! Whenever I see Spring overseas, I always think to myself that Spring in Japan is definitely the most beautiful. This year I’m sure I’ll get some more Spring photos with my Miku! (^_^)

Sakura Miku bringing some Spring time smiles! I hear that the first sakura this year will be in Fukuoka from around the 20th March! ♡₍₍ ◝(・ω・)◟ ⁾⁾♡

I hope to see more of your photos in the future! ✿

I am sending you this email as well, you can choose either of the pictures for the header if you wish.

Just want to share my love for nendoroids! 🙂

I received lots of lovely photos from Alexandra in Germany! This is just one of the many beautiful photos! ♪

Can you imagine the incredible stories that could be created from a mixture between Touken Ranbu and magical girls? They look so lovely together! ε=(。・д・。)

“A Bottle Fairy”

Looking in my garden and I seemed to have caught the most beautiful fairy of the all☆

A fairy trapped in a bottle in a garden filled with lovely little flowers! The ‘Nendoroid in a Jar’ actually looks quite adorable!! ♥︎

I went on a trip to Kyoto for the Touken Ranbu collaboration, and the plum blossoms at Kitano Tenmangu were just starting to flower so I took a photo of them together with Mikazuki-san! I think he is quite happy to see them!

Seeing Mikazuki Munechika so happy about the Spring flowers makes me feel all happy inside as well! I think I should go on a trip down to Kyoto sometime this year! ♪

Classic Japanese dolls and Miku-san! ♪

The 3rd of March was Hina Matsuri or ‘Doll’s Day’ in Japan! A lovely photo to celebrate! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
