Here is a lovely scene of a cherry blossom viewing party 花見 (hanami) in a Japanese palace garden.The cherry tree is in full bloom. It was painted by Kikuzawa Eizan 菊川 英山 (1787-1867). The two ladies are drinking tea and eating some sweats. They are wearing fashionable clothes. The woman in the front is showing an interesting obi with a pattern of cranes, the one in the background has cherry blossoms on her kimono.
