My best picnic memory is the Bento box made by my mother when we went to see cherry blossoms. The best picnic season in Japan is spring when we can enjoy cherry blossoms. We bring Bento box filled with lots of goodies, sit under cherry trees, look at cherry blossoms, eat and talk. The Bento made by my mother was filled with Norimaki (sushi rolls), Karaage (garlic ginger fried chicken), Tako-san wiener (octopus-shaped grilled sausage), Usagi-ringo (rabbit shaped apples), Chikuwa-kyuri (fish sausage with cucumber) and many more. I miss those days but I can always go on a picnic if I close my eyes. I hope my drawing makes you smile especially if you miss your family.
I have a young family (a 4 year old and 8 month old), and going on picnics together has been one of the main ways we’ve had some adventure during quarantine. It has allowed us to safely make a space for ourselves at the park, in a small patch of grass, or even our backyard! While our picnics may not be fancy, and probably a bit messy, it’s been the center of so many laughs, conversations, and memories!
Everything you need for a perfect picnic! I illustrated some things to pack for the best picnic ever! Bring cozy blankets, a basket full of tasty treats, a bottle of wine and music and don’t forget to invite your loved ones... or not :) Enjoy!
