Copenhagen Sakura Festival

We went to an absolutely charming event today; the annual, local 'Hanami' or 'cherry-blossom-viewing-picnic' at the waterfront park Langelinie. You really must go tomorrow, if you missed it today, read all about it right here in the festival program.

It has been the perfect day for a Hanami, I must say - the weather was unbelievable for an April day: just like a perfect, breezy summer day. And every local Japanese (and Japanese wannabe) must have been there, and so was every manga- anime- and cosplay-nut in their craziest outfits. It was great. We had matcha tea milkshakes and chilled to Japanese folk songs and live Kendo fighting and just general spring delirium.
