|entering Hana-no-michi (flower street) in Takarazuka|
with Sensei (in pink) and Christy (in purple);
Christy and I asked Sensei to join us for lunch and she accepted.
She also bought us all treats: strawberries surrounded by an (bean paste) and mochi.
|Sensei (our shodo teacher) and Christy|
|Sensei knows a lot about flowers and shared many names with us as we slowly walked; |
unfortunately I've forgotten them.
After saying goodbye, I got on my bike thinking to freely spend my sunny afternoon at Nakayamadera looking at more Sakura (blossoms). But along the way, I saw something else enticing: a public library.
