Meet underneath the Cherry Blossom

We had Cherry Blossom Picnic Tour and meeting with officers of City of Date today. It is the best season for cherry blossom at here of Fukushima and the city has the Cherry Blossom Festival. We had “Hanami” meeting today and joined to the festival. “Hanami” means a picnic watching cherry blossom with lot of drink. Most of Japanese are crazy for Cherry Blossom drink party, it is very important event for this season.

It was very warm with strong sun shine. The cherry’s color was bright pink illuminated by spring sun.
