Mokuyokai Ohanami Redux

At the tea house
Thanks to Maktaaq’s write-up, my lovely bride and I went out to the Mokuyokai Ohanami (cherry blossom viewing party) at the Nitobe Memorial Garden at UBC.

It was a delight.

The Vancouver Mokuyokai Society puts on quite a party. The bento boxes were tasty, the tea ceremony was charming (and the tea house in Nitobe Garden was the perfect venue), the music was atmospheric, and the garden was lovely. Oddly, the one missing bit was cherry blossoms. The garden only has two cherry blossom trees. They’re lovely trees, and the blossoms were in full bloom, but only two.

You know where cherry blossoms are plentiful and in full bloom right now? The trees right beside Burrard Skytrain Station. Go see them in the next day or two.
