Yoko was so helpful with train transfers to/from Ashikaga Flower Park given my mother uses a wheelchair. Flower park was absolutely beautiful even with an overcast sky.
Thank you so much, Lisa, for writing a review and giving me the opportunity of letting me meet your wonderful parents. It was such a delight for me to talk with all of you so keen on learning more about the Japanese culture and willing to have very Japanese dishes, including Hijiki, black seaweeds, and Aosa, seaweeds. I wish I could show your mom quiter cherry blossom spots, which not many people know, next year or while she is still eager to travel. The peak season of late March till early April is quite hectic and the hotel rates also goes up, but I know many places that starts blooming since the end of January, as I wrote in my blog. I'll be dreaming of meeting all of you soon, even if I understand it might be quite hard for you to prepare everything. Thank you again, Yoko
