Ready your mats. It’s time to go on a picnic!
In Japan, cherry blossom season starts in mid-March and ends in early May. During this time, friends and family celebrate Hanami and admire the beauty of the blossoming sakura trees. Picnics and outdoor parties are some of the most popular Hanami activities. And like many springtime festivities, good food is a must!
I’ve curated a list of popular picnic food ideas that are best enjoyed during Hanami or any time of the spring season! Plus, I’ve got a bonus Japanese Prawn Taco recipe at the end of this post that’s fit for the occasion!
