  • A 30-minute tour of plum blossom forest with 15 varieties of a plum tree
  • A look around one of Kyoto’s public parks, well-loved by locals

On March 2, during a half hour stroll around the public park’s plum blossoms, we’ll take our time to stop and appreciate what’s in bloom while chatting about Umekoji Park, a local favorite spot within easy walking distance of Kyoto Station.
