桜 (sakura = cherry blossoms) 2017

日本人は「花見」という事がわかると思いますが、外国人が知らないかもしれませんね。今年の花見できる週末はなかなか晴れてくれてないけど、とにかく写真をとりました。

Japanese readers will be familiar with the concept of hanami 花見 ‘flower-look,’ which essentially means a picnic with alcohol, with/under/around sakura (cherry blossom) trees. It’s really popular. Some people say it’s the heart of the Japanese people.

The weather this season has been sunny on a couple of weekdays over the sakura season, but cloudy and/or raining on the weekends. I went and hanami-ed anyway and took some photos.

  1. In Australia now many schools are involved in Stephanie Alexander’s kitchen garden scheme. It has been very successful in teaching kids where there food comes from and encouraging them to eat fresh produce. A positive step since your primary school days!
