Hanami: Partying Japanese Style

In the spring when the cherry blossoms bloom, Japanese people flock en mass to fields with cherry blossom trees, lay down a blanket, bust out the BBQ and enjoy Hanami – or cherry blossom viewing parties.

On Saturday the JET program had a social Hanami party at Kokura castle, in Kitakyushu.

At the bathroom we met some Japanese people who invited us to join their party. Since they had really cute children in Anpanman sweaters and a magician, we couldn’t say no.
