I walked around in the garden before lunch.
Several bonsai trees were exhibited and some of these trees very old. Actually, the tree in the photo below was about 500 years old. It is amazing that this tiny tree has been alive in this world since the beginning of the 16'th century!
In the cafe, I had some beer and enjoyed the meal with other members of the kimono circle in a relaxing mood.

Honjozo Shiboritate Genshu (Sasaichi Shuzo)
Dry and rich-bodied sake. Now that ginjo-shu and clean, crispy sake have gained in popularity, I am happy to find this sake, whose taste is kind of unsophisticated. I had it at ambient temperature, but want to try having it warmed next time.
