Animal Hanami 動物花見

Sumaura park is located on the western slopes of the Rokkō mountains in Suma, Kōbe. Created on land originally owned by the Imperial family, in 1934 it was converted into a public park that is a splendid place to view sakura blossoms in the spring and the changing color of the leaves in autumn. The park has many hiking trails and at the foot of one of these trials is a small house that also serves as a rest stop and cantina. On this particular day it was not fellows of the two legged variety, but instead many furry quadrupeds who were comfortably viewing the blooming sakura from the mats beneath the trees - and catching a nap.
