Iiiiiiiit’s that time again! It is Sakura season in Japan, and while the partying that usually goes on this time of year has been cut back significantly, people are still taking the time to get out and smell the, well, cherry blossoms!
Although to be fair, I should really start with the plums first…
Well, yes. During our hanami party at Nanakoshinyama, Brandt and Mizuki went for a little walk and came back engaged. Only none of us believed them. Mizuki had this giant plastic diamond that fit two of the fingers (the ring hadn’t arrived from Hawaii yet), and they were nonchalant about the whole thing, so everyone shrugged it off until it came up again about an hour later, to which a lot of EEEEHHHHH?!?!’s rang out. They really got engaged!
Well, that called for CELEBRATION! …after we found more cherry blossoms.
Other than that, hanami this year was pretty uneventful. Some more pictures:

Thanks for watching! Perhaps sake will be involved next year.
