Lady's Rome Explorations

Enjoy Hanami in Rome with Lady

When Spring comes, there’s a place in Rome where you can feel as in Japan and hanami, enjoy the view of the blooms of the cherry trees.

So, last week I went a couple of times to EUR little lake (Laghetto dell’EUR) for a walk under the tree. Around the lake, there’s a path called Passeggiata del Giappone, Japan walk, where 1100 cherry trees stand.

In 1959 the Japanese premier  Nobusuke Kishi donated 2500 cherry trees to Rome and officially opened the Japanese Walk.

Every year, between March and April, I’m one of the people who wait with trepidation for the cherry trees blossoms. This year we had an early spring, so, on March 24 the trees were already full of beautiful blooms.

It’s so relaxing to walk under these flowers!

For a while, you feel to be somewhere else, very far from the city.

Especially at the weekend, the park is crowded with people sitting in the grass for a picnic.

Sometimes, you can meet people wearing the traditional Japanese clothes. One day I will come wearing the yukata that I bought in Tokyo. Maybe.

There’s nothing better than lay on the grass enjoying the view of the cherry trees.
