this is an open letter on my blog just to inform everybody that starting from 25th MARCH to 10th APRIL 2011 at the EUR’s LAKE in ROME (artificial lake situated in ROME, EUR area) you can have the beautiful experience of the HANAMI. This year, after terible heartquake and tsunami in Japan, killing thousands of people, the SAKURA trees and HANAMI should be more an occasione to share common feelings toward japanese people.
For those of you not in touch with the Japanese world>>>HANAMI is :
F L O W E R S
V I E W I N G
Particulartly, symbol of this beautiful Japanese traditions are CHERRY BLOSSOMS (sakura ume – 桜 櫻) and the presence of this kind f cherry in the Eur area in Rome, is the reason why we can enjoy at home this event.
If you are in Rome during these days and wish to enjoy this experience, imagine that more as an HAPPENING than a well organized EVENT.
Every and each of you can do HANAMI and join all other people doing the same. Naturally, best days will be on Sundays . There are some groups of people loving the JAPAN WORLD that will be there even dressing with japanese Kimono or Yukata, eating Japanese home made food and drinks or even Italian, taking pictures of course amidst a little bit of Japanese Spring Nature in our city too.
Here are some information about:
PERIOD : from 25 the MARCH to 10th APRIL (but take always a look at temperature as NATURE cannot be directed by our wishes)
WHERE: ROME, EUR
HOW TO ARRIVE: from ROME TERMINI STATION (CENTRALE STATION) just take the UNDERGRAOUND B line – (the BLUE one) direction: LAURENTINA and get off at: EUR PALASPORT or EUR FERMI. The EUR LAKE is right among these 2 stops. At the present we are having works at EUR PALASPORT station so it may be better to get off at the EUR FERMI one and just follow the nature…
