The 3rd of May, 2014
What a magical Spring day in The City.
We packed and went back to Handanuma for a picnic
to see the last of the Sakura by the lake.
I want to see a wild bear in Japan and apparently there are bears
in the surrounding woodlands.
We seemed to be taking quite a bit of kit for a simple picnic ........
Plus my new hiking stick; perfect for fending off a wild bear.
Chikako setting out the luncheon in the 25C sunshine.
The last of the cherry blossoms; the wind was blowing the blossoms gently away.
My video effort was not so spectacular unfortunately.
After finishing lunch, we went for a stroll through the woods.
Amazingly, there were swing sets at random intervals.
