This week, many people in my city have been going to Osakajokoen for hanami. Hanami is flower-viewing, and the most popular season for flower-viewing is, of course, sakura season in early April. Sakura are in bloom for a really short time, but they are very pretty. I think my favorite thing about them, though, is that they smell so good. There are cherry blossom trees growing just within the gates of my school, so the air when I enter school each morning smells wonderful. Also, sakura-flavored mochi tastes pretty good!

To be honest, I think hanami is a little overrated. I decided not to go this year. I have only ever gone to hanami at Osaka Castle, which is a nice place, but hanami itself is nothing special. It should be more like a festival: with music and more food! Mainly, it is just a lot of people sitting on picnic blankets and drinking, and it is SO crowded.

Thanks for sharing your culture! Very interesting reading. I had a Japanese room-mate in college many years ago--really enjoyed learning things from her!
