Earning a few yen in the sun
All people in Takato live for or by the sakura. This little group is not enjoying the sun as it seems. But they are watching a few parked cars on their land. Many people open their land or fields for parking during the sakura season. This way they earn a few yen. Most parking fees were 700 Yen.
Take all your stuff to the park
The people who are not making money from it are going to the Sakura. They take lots of stuff with them, like food and drinks but also things to sit on.
Sakura at night
During the blossom period the park is also open at night. The trees are lit from below. And some people brought gaslamps for their picknick.
Many citizens of Takato grow mountain vegetables in their own gardens. Some sell it at markets, but most just eat it at home.
Most supermarkets sell these vegetables too.
