JSOS were happy to take part in the JETAA Scotland Cherry Blossom Viewing Picnic that took place on Sunday the 23rd of April at the Edinburgh-Kyoto Friendship Garden at Lauriston Castle. Event hosted by JETAA Scotland, and co-hosted by Connecting Japanese and Japan Sakura in Scotland.
Despite the weather being overcast, there were lots of activities and opportunities to dress in Yukata. A wonderful display of Hina Matsuri dolls, Koinobori streamers and origami practise. It was super to meet Scotland Jetaa members and their Chairperson Željka Letica. Plus of course, the magical Sakura blossoms in full bloom … it was like being transported back to Japan. Thank you to everyone who helped to stage this event … ありがとうございました！
