I enjoyed this period in Ueno Park, Tokyo and Kyoto and Hiroshima ... this is soooooo beautiful!
lovely shot ....
I wanna go back to Japan at Hanami .___. this is such a nice tradition! And it is always so funny and there is yummy food and all are in a good mood ...
I wished there was something equal in Germany .____.
jyoujo's avatar
well, i am pretty sure there are some nice things too in Germany.*May i ask you something ?*
in japan we call our country actually Nihon/nippon.In germany you call your country as something different too??
DieNaerrin's avatar
We say "Deutschland" in German. Did you meant that?
watashi wa nihon ni sumitai .__.
(i have no idea whether this was right)
There is nothing like hanami in Germany ... we just have the "Oktoberfest" (October festival) and it's just about drinking as much beer as possible. I hate this.
jyoujo's avatar
:D as much beer as possible ??
you mean like free pass for sex ...
yeah .... i don't drink either.Only Melon Soda :D
DieNaerrin's avatar
Melon Soda *__* I miss these automates with cool drinks on every side of the streets ... Fanta Grape and all the yummy stuff that doesn't exist in Germany ...
(When I was in Berlin on Saturday, I drank "Ramune" in the Daitokai-Restaurant ^^ and although I drank this many times before I still haven't a clue what it exactly tastes like xDD)
I don't drink either ........
this Oktoberfest is no "all you can drink party" ... beer is expensive there ... it comes along in huge one Liters glass ..... It's celebrated every year espicially in Munich (South Germany) ....... i'm glad i'm living far away from that spot -___-
There are some traditions in Germany I really hate -__-"
