Hanami, the Feast of Blooming Cherry Blossoms at Rickshaw Restaurant

Rickshaw has always welcomed its guests serving Far Eastern top cuisine with superb, genuine food, bright hospitality that is specific to Eastern people, in an authentic environment. Now, in the spirit of cherry blossoming, they focus on one of the most significant and renowned festivals of the Japanese culture, the hanami.  Hence, between  5 and 9 April, Japanese dishes will be in the spotlight.

Hanami’s roots are grounded in the 8th century and the word literally means flower watching. The period between late March and early May is the season of picnics, when those, who wish to admire the blooming of cherry and plum trees spend their lunch or dinner in the nature. Initially, hanami was about the meditative contemplation of the beautiful trees, however, by now, it has become a one-month festival across Japan.
