Lone Hanami

Hitori hanami(一人花見)or simply translated as Lone Hanami, is something that became increasingly common in Japan. While Hanami or Cherry Blossom viewing is part of popular Japanese tradition, mostly by enjoying the 'once a year' beautiful scenery with friends and family lately lots of people starting to do Hanami alone. An article in Huffingtonpost Japan even stated that this year, 16% of people doing hitori hanami. And I probably part of those 16% who enjoyed hitori hanami.
