Hanami at Totsuka, Yokohama

Today, I went out for a long walk around the Totsuka Station area in Totsuka Ward, Yokohama.  This time of year, many people in Japan go out with their families or co-workers to enjoy Hanami, or cherry viewing party.  Near Totsuka Station, Kashiogawa (Kashio River) has many blooming cherry trees and a lot of people enjoying them.  Both sides of the river have cherry trees and a park.  Enjoy the pictures!

Any time the cherry trees bloom in Japan, the food vendors come out for people enjoying hanami.
