Hanami Picnic (under the cherry blossoms)Monday, September 21, 2009
It’s springtime in the Wairarapa and we’re making the most of it. Yesterday we grabbed lunch and headed to the cherry orchard for a picnic.
One day I will look up Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) etiquette. I’m not sure if it includes sitting on the grass, eating and playing catch. We felt a little shy and were worried about being culturally insensitive when a Japanese tourist came and took some photos. However, it was a beautiful day and we’ll certainly be back next year.
