We were sitting at a food stall under a canopy near the river, having a first drink and small snack on our way to our indoor Hanami Party; We are not as hard-core as some who brought umbrellas and tarps to enjoy their picnic day.
The man who served us was 83 years old; His voice loud and clear as he shouted to the people floating by in the boats, to the people strolling through the park.
“The food is good! Join us! Spring is now! Enjoy!”
