Hanami Party

Update: The hanami will be happening tomorrow, April 2. While we may not have today's sunshine, it doesn't look like we'll have rain, so please join us for what will be a very pleasant and convivial appreciation of the cherries, the bochi, and the sweet transience of life. We hope to see you there.

Please join the Foreign Section Trust for a relaxing day of eating and drinking under the cherry blossoms.

We also invite you to stroll around the section to get acquainted with the historic significance of the foreigner's section of Aoyama Cemetery. FST members will be on hand to discuss the city's plans to replace part of the cemetery with a park and how you can get involved with the urgent task of preserving this piece of Japan's history.

Date: Saturday, April 2, 2005 (rain dates: April 3 and April 9)
Time: 11am - 7pm
Cost: free
What to bring: Your favorite food and drink
Place: Under the cherry tree at the the south end of Aoyama Cemetery's foreign section.
