Seasonal Food / Everyday Meals / Diary Hanami Lunch March 27, 2021 / by Junko Stay-home hanami lunch🌸🌸🌸 Japan’s cherry blossoms are in full bloom, but we gave up hanami (cherry blossoms viewing) parties this year, instead, we enjoyed stay-home hanami with few friends. The cherry blossom outside of the kitchen is beautiful as always and I’ve got pretty sakura bonsai to enjoy at home this year. Hopefully, the mess is over soon and we can all enjoy the Hanami parties next year. Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :) Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature. Lately, I enjoy traveling to places I’ve never been and dancing Salsa/Kizomba there. Always a traveler at heart. Freelance web/graphic designer. Coffee & chocolate addict.
