“Hanami festival under the Sakura blossoms “
The word “Hanami” is used to describe the celebration which takes place during the cherry blossom season. The season lasts only couple of weeks as the trees blossom. As i was walking through Uneo park it was a lively atmosphere where people secure places under the cherry blossoms many hours in advance. People barbeque, bring home cooked food, takeaways and the Sake flows freely. The weather was warm and as the evening progressed the celebratory atmosphere got more lively most likely under the influence of the Sake! It was a good experience to see people socialising in good spirits adding to the beautiful scene.
