It was Easter Sunday so we first heard mass at Fuchuu Catholic Church before going to the park. To our surprise the mass was in Japanese. Luckily the readings were read in English. And the rest in Japanese. I was so happy and amazed at the same time when I saw/heard Catholic Japanese singing praises and praying in unison. After the mass the priest and the sacristans gave Easter eggs which I wasn't able to have eventhough there were plenty of them. I asked Basuraman to get me an egg but he refused to get me one. All of a sudden I wasn't in the mood to have an Easter egg. Basuraman and I together with Wyn and his wife took the bus while the rest of the gang (parang Scooby Doo lang) rode their bikes to get to Koganei Park.
I was a little bit disapponted (konti lang naman) when I saw the park because it was jam packed. And the sakura (cherry blossoms) were not in full bloom yet. After walking for a few minutes we were able to spot a small vacant area where we placed our mat so we can already have our lunch.
