Hanami


The sakura are back and with that comes hanami - cherry blossom viewing.

Sometimes the best hanami doesn't involve gazing at delicate pink flowers whose lifespan is less than half as long as the average bee.  Sometimes the best hanami is a gathering of friends in a washitsu of a 200-year-old machiya drinking sake fresh from the barrel, eating hira-zukuri-cut sashimi and talking until the last train.
