Japan Time

Cherry blossom season is my favorite season in Japan. There's only about a week and a half window when the trees are in full bloom and you can see pink everywhere you go. It's gorgeous.
Japanese people love to celebrate the cherry blossoms blooming by having hanami, cherry blossom viewing parties. Food, drinking and friends under the cherry blossoms. So fun.
Yesterday I went to hanami with some friends and friends of friends. We went to a beautiful spot in Fujieda, Konpira-san, a mountain covered in cherry blossom trees.

Our little group.

Our party was next to people with a portable karaoke machine. Amazing.
