We had brilliant weather this past Saturday the 20th for our hangout at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown.  We ate delicious foods such as the Teri Burger, Yaki Soba, sandwiches, Japanese-style hot dogs, BBQ meat plates, and shaved ice from various food booths.


After lunch, we headed over to the Peace Plaza and spent some time at the information booths along the way.  We saw Japanese ‘cultural arts’ performances at the Peace Plaza and visited the booths selling products embodying creativity and talent.


After all the walking and heat, it was time to rest for a bit.  We sat and drank cold beverages, while watching a band perform 80s and 90s classic hits.  It was a good opportunity to get to know each other better, to meet new faces, and to celebrate culture.  Thanks to those who came out.  We hope that you had fun!
