はなみ (さくら) parties

Love the bubble wrap

はなみ -Flower viewing
さくら - Cherry blossoms

This season is very famous for the Hanami parties. I thought it was important to mention some of the interesting things i have learned this week.

The end of last week was the peak time to see the cherry blossoms this week. As Gramps and i found out when we went to Ueno Park. After peak they usually take about 5 days to fall down.

Also there are some very interesting facts about the Hanami parties. Some people send one person to wait under the cherry blossoms for up to 8 - 10 hours to secure the perfect party spot. The best times is for foreigners viewing the parties is the weeknights after work. And i can tell you it was amazing. The craziest was the university students who were having a very good time skulling beer.
