Spring in the Air... Hanami watching and Spring Events!


Weather hasn't been kind to us this spring (though the previous weekend was beautiful!). I hope you've all been enjoying the spring flowers all throughout town at least? I took this photo on my IPhone last year after a very tiring shift at work and it definitely put my mind at ease (if only for my 30 minute break!). Though it's grey out there, I've noticed lots of cherry blossoms blooming around so I hope to be able to enjoy some of it this year. Although it's not as culturally significant here in North America, hanami (flower watching in Japanese) is very popular over there with millions of people flocking to parks all over Japan to have picnics, take photos, and occasionally drinking sake in public. In Vancouver, we have our own celebration of hanami in the form of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival.

Anyways, back to the meat of things! I am proud to announce some events that Kawaii Eats will be participating in for the next 2 months! It's going to be an exciting (and delicious!) spring! Here are the dates:
