Cherry Blossom Picnic, Komazawa Koen, April 4th, 2009

By Kuniko Noguchi

Cherry blossoms in full bloom and the gentle spring sunshine…Yes, it was a nice Hanami 1.jpgpicnic day! People were probably tempted to the great outdoors by usual Japanese signs of spring (especially the sakura) and we had people from diverse cultures and age groups.  In additions to familiar faces we had new members and visitors come to say hi who were interested in joining the Australia Society. Apparently most of our crowd had never met, but they got along like old friends and shared great conversations: sport is always a good conversation starter, and our Japanese members shared their experiences in living in Australia. As the Aussie drinks were consumed, the Hanami 2.jpgconversation went back and forth, and our party relaxed under the delicate sakura blossom, the time shared by the green kangaroo flag passed so quickly!
