The Hanami Festival in the cherry park in Roihuvuori was planned to take place last Sunday, May 14. For some reason the arrangers of the event decided to changed it to a week later on May 21, today. That was a good move because had it taken place last Sunday the cherry trees had not been in bloom. Now was the most perfect day for the event. Warm, blue skies, beautiful cherry blossom and, oh my goodness, thousands of visitors. More than ever before.
beautiful sakura trees, lovely Japanese style clothes, and very cute Akita! (that is an Akita dog this time, right? LOL!) couldn’t make it to this year’s festival, so thanks for sharing the pics!
Aww, such a pity you couldn’t make to this year’s festival. It was the 10th time and it was fantastic in every way. You are right, it is an Akita puppy 🙂 So adorable.
