about  Hanami  お花見
The Japanese people continue the tradition of hanami, gathering in great numbers wherever the flowering trees are found. Thousands of people fill the parks to hold feasts under the flowering trees, and sometimes these parties go on until late at night. In more than half of Japan, the cherry blossoming days come at the same time of the beginning of school and work after vacation, and so welcoming parties are often opened with hanami. Usually, people go to the parks to keep the best places to celebrate hanami with friends, family, and company coworkers many hours or even days before.

      Since we don't really know when the flowers will bloom, we still haven't made any plans on going again. IT might be a little too cold still for the flowers to bloom next Saturday.

    The weather is good today! From 12:00 to around 12:30, if anyone is going, hopefully some of us can meet around the Pecan Grove (on the map, it's number 28)!

    The Japan American Society has worked with our group many times and have always had great events. The Dallas Arboretum is a beautiful place and events there are always fun.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
