It was rainy and cold yesterday, not good for real Hanami (and I suggested virtual Hanami). But today was sunny and cherry blossoms in Tokyo are in full bloom (I hear it is the fastest in all Japan-a bit hard to believe!).
So I decided to check the nearby park to see whether people are having party under the cherry blossoms. I did not get there until late in the afternoon and people started leaving after being so cold even with some drinks? It is always nice to see people enjoy company and good time. Compared with regular weekend where I see more families, young groups were there. This season is so special in Japan and so short.
I am invited to the Hanami the day after tomorrow, but I had to cancel to my regret. (I went there last year and it was simply gorgeous!)
