Sakura, sakura☆

Hello all, it's Maki from Osaka :)
How are you? It's a bit strange weather here. Still cold in spite of mid April...!

Have you ever heard the Japanese word, "sakura"? It means cherry blossoms, and is the symbolic flower in Japan. We enjoy the season of sakura in early spring.(From late March to early April). It's a typical Japanese custom, but people really love to have parties under/near the trees. (Me, too!)

Since it is mid April, the season is getting over...

(Woo, I'm already miss sakura!)
Anyway, I took a photo of sakura, Hope you can enjoy, too ;)




And, this is a photo from Rumi in Tokyo.
People are enjoying the parties. Sounds fun!


During the sakura season, we can see a lot of "sakura-pink" color all over the city. I saw many sakura themed show windows, and even foods such as sakura cake, cookies, and doughnuts at department stores. It is one of my favorite seasons.

Have a nice weekend!

Maki
