Japanese style hanami in Stockholm
One girl was wearing a Japanese yukata, though it looked more like an indoor version than the more colorful stuff girls usually wear to festivals in Japan. She and her friend also had a "blue sheet" (what plastic sheets for picnic are called in Japan), and sat and ate below the cherry trees. Very Japanese. Too bad I did not bring any of my yukatas with me to Sweden, or I could have joined.
