As usual years, SOEI had a hanami (cherry blossom viewing) party last month as a social event for all the staff. The main theme of the hanami party this year was the same as that of the last year, omotenashi (hospitality) toward the administrative staff by legal practitioners. It means that the legal practitioners acted as hosts to the administrative staff in recognition of their professional support every day. Some of the legal practitioners were dressed as bartenders and Japanese chefs, and served beer, sake, wine, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages to the administrative staff to show their gratitude.

Also, one legal practitioner, who is a master of tea ceremony, served tea in the sakura (cherry tree) garden.

I like this event with the theme of omotenashi. I hope all the administrative staff could enjoy the party.

By the way, there are beautiful sakura in the garden, and we could also enjoy the blossoms.
