Cherry blossoms blooming in Kyoto 2020 vol.2

I went to check the flowering status of cherry blossoms in Kyoto Gyoen park.

gosho-20325-2.jpeg

In Kyoto Gyoen park, Weeping cherry and Village cherry trees are mainly planted, so the timing of blooming slightly differs from Somei Yoshino cherry trees around Kamogawa river.

The famous big weeping cherry, "Demizu no Shidare Zakura" seems to be in full bloom earlier this week, and the flowers have already begun to scatter.

On the other hand, Mountain cherry and Village cherry trees are blooming considerably. Although it varies considerably depending on the park location, it is almost half blooming.

"Konoetei no Itozakura" is just before full bloom. Maybe this weekend is the peak of flower beauty.

Regardless of the pessimistic situation caused by COVID-19, the cherry blossoms are blooming beautifully again this year. At the very least, I will love the cherry blossoms and seek a moment of peace. With the arrival of spring, I wish for world peace to come.

"Haginotuyu" - Japanese Sake Brewery in Siga

haginotuyu-2020-1.jpeg

I went to visit "Fukui Yahei Shoten", Japanese Sake Brewery of "Haginotuyu" in Takashima, Shiga Prefecture two weeks ago.

The company was founded in 1751 and has been making Sake for about 270 years.

haginotuyu-2020-2.jpeg

I visited this sake brewery in May 2017, and it was a very valuable experience to be able to see it during the sake brewing.

This tour was allowed because the final steamed rice work in this season was completed a few days ago.

haginotuyu-2020-3.jpeg

Sake brewing equipment is not open to the public. So I can only show the tank that Sake is brewing.

haginotuyu-2020-4.jpeg

Finally, I tasted freshly made sake, aged sake and even orange liqueur.

All were very delicious. I came home with a tipsy feeling. Thank you very much Mr.Fukui CEO for inviting me.
