Gengo-dō: Tokyo in bloom

No Comments

Spring is here in Japan! Sakura (桜), or cherry blossoms, are now in full bloom around the world, prompting sakura viewing parties and excursions known as hanami (花見) here in Japan and abroad. To celebrate, Japanese residents head to the closest park, lay down a blanket and spend the day enjoying the weather, trees and one another’s company.

Check out some shots of our special Gengo hanami, featuring a few Gengo babies, blossoms and badminton.
