Ronjie scheduled a hanami (flower viewing) date for us, so he took Easter Monday off from school/work and we spent the day in Tokyo.
Since the place we were visiting didn't have a picnic area, I prepared Spam musubi for our baon.

Boats are available for rent for ¥800/30 minutes or ¥1600/hour, during sakura season.
On other days, boat rental fees are ¥500 or ¥1000, respectively.
