Last week-end I went to an amazing seasonnal event in the Shimizu-yu sento in Tsurumi.
Theis event was about celebrating spring by doing the famous "Ohanami" which consist in admiring cherry blossom and basically sharing drinks/foods with friends.
This year, again I participate to the Ota-ku sento walk.
