It's Hanami Season!

It seems that Spring has officially arrived in Japan. The weather is getting progressively warmer and things are starting to bloom - namely the cherry blossoms! During cherry blossom season, there are many "hanami" or cherry blossom viewing parties. People get together in parks and at shrines (anywhere there are a lot of cherry trees), lay down a tarp, and have a big picnic. Everyone brings food and drinks and ours included some music and a lively discussion with my "Would You Rather?" game cards.
