The other week, [identity profile] dracosphynx.livejournal.com dragged me up to the San Francisco Japantown for their 50th Cherry Blossom Festival. Whee! It was fun, though at this point we both know pretty much what to expect.

Is it that time of the year already? Yes, and past by two weeks-- well, better than two months of photos languishing in my phone before I get around to posting them. :)

[livejournal.com profile] kagetsume was out in the area and by happy chance, there was a Cherry Blossom festival going on in Japantown, SF, on that weekend. He was quite interested so he willingly drove me up there on that Saturday. Good for me, since I hate driving past my 'leash range', especially up in San Francisco.

Around this time of the year, the Cherry Blossom Festival crops up in San Francisco, and [livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx shanghai'd me once again.

This isn't actually as easy as you might think.

It all began with the Cherry Blossom Festival of 2013 when I became aware of the mysteries and wonders of Japanese paper dolls. Take a look at the link, tell me you wouldn't be interested in being able to make your own!

This year, I inquired whether they knew of any paper doll classes down here, but on being informed they were pretty much the only one around, I decided to try the workshop. So, roll forward a few weeks to May 19th, I gathered what little courage I possessed and essayed the 50-minutes or so drive to San Francisco. (Aiee!) This is quite a bit out of my comfort range; I'm not normally comfy driving any further than 20 minutes or so, but Japantown in San Francisco is not near the BART stations, unfortunately.

I got there quite early, allowing for me to try and find some lunch and maybe browse a bit. Some browsing did reveal ramen places (and sushi, but I'm not much for sushi, something about raw fish makes me reluctant to put it in my mouth) but I suspected it might be a bit heavy food. I got an egg muffin sammich from a local cafe instead. I also failed to find a paper dolls book in Books Nikaku. It really is an esoteric topic!

[livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx and I headed up to San Francisco once again for the Cherry Blossom Festival. We went last year, so this year we did things a bit differently.
