When the weather is beautiful there is nothing better to do than get out and enjoy it. Chinatsu (a friend from the YFU exchange camp) and I went to enjoy Hanami at Osakajokoen (the park in front of the Osaka castle) this weekend.
We laid out our tarps and had a feast of fruit, veggies, chips, crackers, sushi, "and so on." (Sorry I couldn't help myself, the Japanese love to use this phrase.)
It's a very pretty area and reminds me a lot of the Meiji-jingu in Tokyo. Both, Osakajo and the Meiji Shrine, are located amidst busy cities, but once inside their grounds they offer a quiet escape to the hustle and bustle of the city.
I'm soooooo happy it's spring!
