Hanami Charity Pink Party

2017 April 1 (Saturday)

Yoyogi-koen, Tokyo

One of the biggest international Hanami parties in town! Around 300 attendees each year!

Relax with a beer or a cocktail or five or ten and some great company at a picnic under the beautiful cherry blossom trees...

What is Hanami?
'Hana' means flower and 'Mi' is something to do with looking, so you could say that hanami means 'looking at flowers' or 'flower viewing' but there is more to it than that. Hanami was originally a religious ritual to pray for a good rice crop, the trees in full bloom likened to a good harvest later in the year. During medieval times, the way cherry petals fall at the height of their beauty and their transience assumed symbolism both in the Samurai warrior code and in Buddhism. In Japan today the tradition of gathering under the blossoms is a chance [read: excuse (^_^)] to get out and party, picnic, drink, see old friends and make new ones, more than a religious or symbolic event. It is beautiful, it can be enchanting...anything could happen!

The theme for our party is meeting people (HanaMEET!), so bring all your friends of all nationalities and rock on over to Yoyogi park in the afternoon and get met! Dress code is PINK so wear something PINK, as PINK as you can think or you gonna stink! ;)

Important note: This is a CHARITY EVENT! All the proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society
