Photogenic

Hanami  to take as many selfies beneath the cherry blossom trees as possible.

Ok, so not quite the definition of hanami, but it might as well be. Every spring, when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, the tradition is to admire the flowers with a picnic of food and alcohol, along with thousands of other people. Now, in the Facebook age, it’s a quest to see how many likes you’ll get on that selfie you took while you friend awkwardly stood by, waiting.

I saw that happen a number of times…#selfie

But social networking platforms aside, these flowers are incredibly photogenic, and the idea of hanami is a wonderful way to spend a day, when the weather is kind. Unfortunately for me, it rarely is, but that doesn’t stop me going anyway.
