The Japanese have an ancient traditional custom called Hanami. It translates to flower viewing. There are festivals in Japan that have been happening for centuries to go watch the sakura or cherry blossom flowers. The custom is said to have started during the Nara Period (710–794). We r lucky that in New Jersey's Branch Brook Park has more than 2,700 Japanese cherry blossom trees that burst into full bloom during the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Peaking of Cherry Blossoms have to do with the temperature outside. Since we had a very cold spring so far, its hard to estimate when this will happen. For this reason, the date of the ride could change. The ride will be 50cc friendly but, a tunnel will be crossed during the ride. We will meet at a Japanese bakery Panya in the East Village for breakfast and get pastries to take with us so we can have a snack at the park under a Hanami tree. After some time in the park, we will ride to Mitsuwa Marketplace for lunch in the food court and to buy some Japanese groceries.
