We are excited to join annual cherry blossom party, “OHANAMI 2018”. This event, April 1 at
Inogasira park, was a time for all of those with a connection to Minnesota to come together and enjoy both good company and the fleeting beauty of the cherry blossoms.  
Young and a little old people gathered and enjoyed potluck lunch, watching cherry blossoms.
in full bloom. There is a lake in the center part of the park where many young couples took 
boats to chat and enjoy viewing flowers from the lake.
