After one or two frustrating false starts, the capital’s blossoms just about hit their fabled full bloom over the weekend, meaning that any Tokyo tree with a pink tint was positively teeming with people intent on a good time.
An occasion that involved a fair bit of folk,
a phenomenal amount of food,
and even larger volumes of lager which, at lunch time at least, was too much for those traditionally teetotal.
Others, however, were more intent on picking a place more peaceful,
while some were simply having none of the silliness as they’d seen it all before.
