Hanami a treasured memory for all Japanese throught the year








"Always they stepped through the gallery with 
a strange rising of the heart, but the five of 

them cried out as one when they saw that 

cloud of pink spread across the late afternoon 
sky. It was the climax of the pilgrimage, the 

moment treasured through a year. All was 

well, they had come again to the cherries in 

full bloom" page 89
