Roll of film #2, part 1. I went to Koganei for hanami* a few days ago with Ryoko and MK. It was a bit far away, and we had to walk over 30 minutes from the station to get to the park, but it was gorgeous. The sakura* were so abundant it was like they formed a canopy over the park…
*Alright, lets review those italicized words, shall we? Hanami is the Japanese tradition of cherry blossom viewing – lay down a picnic mat and enjoy a day under the trees! Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossoms and the trees themselves.
Looks fun huh? I highly recommend that you visit Japan in the Spring, if you ever travel here – the weather is perfect (now in the low 70s everyday!), there are sakura everywhere, and its always sunny!
