UME -a Japanese apricot

I went to a park  named 'Kairakuen' that is famous for its big Ume garden.
Click HERE if you want to know about it.

Ume is full of blossom now, and so many people were enjoying seeing them.
Most Japanese people really love to see flowers and natures.
We have Ume this season, Sakura(Cherry blossoms) next month and autumn leaves in October and so on....

There were many people who were eating while watching.
So we also bought box lunches( we call it Bento in Japanese) ;)
Eating under the sun was so enjoyable! And Bento was very good :)
We had a very goood time...
I cannot wait for Sakura season!!
