Hanami(Cherry blossom viewing) (May 17th, 2019)

The annual "Cherry blossom viewing", organised by the Iceland-Japan Society, was held at Tjörnin lakeside. These 50 cherry trees were given as a gift from the Japan-Iceland Society in Tokyo in 2011, giving an opportunity every year for both theJapanese and Icelandic nationals to cherish their friendship viewing the beautiful cherry blossoms with a Japanese tradition. Even though it was cloudy with a few rain showers, approximately 40 people gathered and enjoyed Japanese food and sake tastings.
