People are people. The intention is noble. But they may skip the heavy fundamentals and simply enjoy being together, sipping a cup of tea, listening to Taiko drummers, trying to dress in a Yukata, having a sake and taking photos, lots of photos, amidst the un-touchable ephemeral beauty of the cherry blossoms.
This year, we finally got the UMBRELLA of all umbrellas. In fact, the classic Japanese parasol, a faithful partner of any outdoor tea ceremony.
Please, enjoy the moment together with us. It was three weeks ago (((((:, but it took long to get hold of the photos

Sincere thanks to all who helped!
