As a tradition of the Kitagawa group, we had a spring cherry blossoms party (Hamami Party) with all members in the Kitagawa group, @Arashiyama district. We enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere!
We also had the farewell and welcome party at the italian restaurant. Prof. Chris Sumby is leaving back to Adelaide after two month stay as a JSPS guest professor and Hiroki and Sofia joins us in the beginning of April.
The nice spring weather with beautiful cherry blossoms drove us to go to a first group trip to Kinosaki-Onsen!! We enjoyed onsen (hot spring) and Sukiyaki!!
