Hanami, Sakura cherry blossoms

Now it's Hanami season in Japan.
Hanami is a party having under the cherry blossoms in the park or river side.
There is a word, "Dumplings before flowers". Many people are drinking without seeing Sakura.

We didn't have a party, so we walked under the Sakura and ate rice ball seeing beautiful flowers.
Also, it's fun to watch people who are drinking outside.

After the Hanami, we met some cats and dogs on the way home.

This is a dog seeing us behind the block. Very cute.

Then, we saw a cat on the roof. She noticed us.
Cat is sleeping
This is a cat sleeping on the ground, in the sun.

Again, we met a cat on the roof. She was meowing to us.

There were a couple of pegeons. They were kissing again and again!

A big dog
At last, we met a big dog. He is very old and always sitting there. He likes to take sun shines there. I like to be with him without a word.

It's fun to walk around the town. We can meet many flowers, cats, birds and dogs!
Beautiful purple flowers
